“I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where.
I love you straightforwardly, without complexities or pride;
so I love you because I know no other way

than this: where I does not exist, nor you,
so close that your hand on my chest is my hand,
so close that your eyes close as I fall asleep.”
― Pablo Neruda, 100 Love Sonnets

Let me tell you 

what you mean to me

you are that feeling of home

my tired feet feel

when they step inside the

cold stream

a wild brook

after walking a whole day

You are the soothing 

feel of the sun on

my face in

crisp winters

You are a waft of that 

fresh breeze

when  I open the 

window to spring mornings

You are that soothing smell

that petrichor

which rejuvenates me from within

You are the feel of dewdrops 

falling from the petals 

when I bow down to kiss the flowers

in my garden

You are that warm cozy feeling

I get sitting next to 

listening to the wood crackling,

near my fireplace

You lit up the sky 

for me like that 

lone star in the endless 

dark nights

You warm my soul as the 

first cry of a newborn

and you soothe my scars when 

your healing words fall on my ears

Your warmth is getting imbued 

in me slowly and surely

as the sun dips 

his toes in the ocean

Let me tell you in million ways

using a billion poetic metaphors

and similes

what you mean to me 

before I run out of words

and nature runs out of its beauty

to compare my love to thee
