The Perfect Words (Daily Practice)

Isaac Hollander McCreery, 13 September 2016

I used to think
I ought to find
The perfect words

So you knew
Once and always
That I loved you

And that would be enough

Now, though, I
See its form
Love is a body
It requires constant care, the
Daily practice of
Shaping and reshaping
“I love you”

Not of perfecting
But of growing
Forever
