Trying to express what love feels like to me

To some people love is just a word.

Yeah! Like an eagle is just a bird!

To me, its meaning is much more intense.

It's a feeling so strong I lose all my sense.

It's something that grabs hold of my heart

and when it lets go I feel like falling apart.

It gives me the feeling of standing in fire,

burning inside with wonderous desire.

Without it I fell like I'm frozen in ice,

locked up in a cold, snowy vice.


I love you like a bird loves to fly;

and I need you like it needs the sky.

It's like I'm submerged and you are air,

without you I drown in despair.

If it's still not clear, let me try once more.

Me without you is like the ocean without the shore.


I love you more than my words can say,

and it only gets stronger every day.
