I Love You

Your mouth
has never uttered those words.
I can’t bring myself to care though​
because you say “I love you”
with every single breath.
You say it with your hands
when you wrap them up in mine
and in each reassuring squeeze.
You say it with your arms
each time you hold me a little tighter.
You say it with your strides
when they pick up at the sight of me.
You say it with your legs
when you come running at my call.
You say it with your eyes
when you’re staring deep in mine.
You say it with your ears
when you listen ’til I’m through.
You way it with your heart
when it speeds up at my touch.
You say it with your lips
in every single kiss.
I love all the ways
you tell me that you love me;
it’s there in your every breath.

Prompt: I Love You
