Love is like an iceberg in that
Most is not observed.
The deep part grinds against far shores
No port has ever served.
My feelings for you are beyond
All words, all thoughts, all knowing.
My love lies deep beneath my sea,
With need and passion showing.
But the bulk of it moves silently,
Counting days in years.
I think of you and suddenly
My heart is wrenched with tears.
I feel within me something huge,
Unseen but lovely, move;
I know I'm just a breath across
This dark and awesome love.
