absolute in abstraction

when i tell you
i love you
with an implication
of forever
it is because
the intention behind
and the feeling within
is one of eternity

each time the word
has escaped my deadened lips
it is an absolute
in its own abstraction

i love
the sun over
a field of flowers
the scent of lilacs
on the breeze
i love
the blue sky
turned taciturn gray
the call of the leaves
turned amber and red

i have
and will continue
to love
a million different things
but only you
shall hear
the words
for they were made
to describe this
intensity of adoration
directed solely
upon you
