I Love You More…

I Love You More

“I love you more” she said to him
“No, I do!” he replied
“I love you to the moon” she said
“The moon and back!” he cried.

“I love you more than words can say,
or even poems” she said
“I love you more than thoughts” said he“
unspoken in my head.”

“I love you with each breath I take”
She quietly declared
“And I love you with all of me”
He said. “No atom spared.”

Each turned to ask the other one
“How will we settle this?”
Then gently, both at once, they said:
“I’ll prove it with a kiss.”
