"Lyublyu ya vas," "Jag älskar dig,"
"Ti amo, mio caro," "Je t'aime, Je t'aime!"
To me, they all sound just the same.
Spanish or German would not do
To express the depth of my love for you
Shakespeare's lines are too clichéd,
Keats, Donne, and Burns's old and frayed
I've always thought it so untrue
When someone said that "violets are blue,"
And some heavenly power strike me dead
If I ever start with "roses are red"!
I wish I had the perfect way
To say what's on my heart
To tell you just how much it aches
Whenever we're apart
But stolen words cannot repay
A love so full and true
For your have stolen nothing, dear--
I've given my heart to you
