i love the color green.
i love the green in the trees, in the
flowers, in the toads that hop
across the pond.
i love the green that’s held in your eyes,
no emerald could ever compare.
i love the stars.
i love the how they twinkle and glow
through the night.
i love how they spread themselves
across the sky
like your freckles
over the nose
i love the way the sun feels on my skin.
i love when there’s not a cloud in the sky
and the great beaming sun wraps around
like your embrace.
i love playing music.
i love running my fingers across the keys
and hearing the notes mush together.
i love listening to the sounds of your laughter,
how each giggle is a note put together
to produce a sweet little melody.
i love watching the rain fall.
i love seeing tiny drops chase each other
down the windowpane,
i love the way your
mirror the rain,
starting off slow
and gaining speed.
i love the shine of the moon.
i love how it glows past the dark of the night
and illuminates every blade of grass
in the endless fields.
i love the glow of your smile,
so contagious and bright
that everything around you
i love the way Mother Nature created you.
i love the beauty
so effortless and natural
that shines outward.
i love you.
