Here’s a poem that expresses love without using the words “I love you”:
Your smile, a beacon bright,
Guides me through each day and night.
With you, I feel complete,
In your arms, I find my seat.
Your laughter, a melody,
Fills my heart with harmony.
With every touch, I’m filled with grace,
In your embrace, I find my place.
The way you smile, the way you speak,
Makes my heart skip and weak.
I am yours, and you are mine,
Together we’ll cross each line.
From dawn to dusk, I am by your side,
With you, I’ll always reside.
Our love is a treasure rare,
A bond that we both will share.
So hold my hand, and never let go,
Together we’ll weather every blow.
Forever and always, my love,
You are the one I’ll always think of.
