The Immeasurable Treasure

If I spent every moment of the rest of my life with you
It wouldn’t be enough
If I knew everything there was to know about you
It wouldn’t be enough
If I tasted the flavor of you alone on my tongue
I would always be starving for more
If I could read every thought that flickered across your mind
I’d want to know so much more
If the sound of your laughter echoed always in my ears
I’d need to hear more and more and more
If you touched me just once, with your fingers or your lips
I’d carry that sensation to my grave
If I looked one time into your eyes and saw love for me there
I would never want anything else
And if I died right now
I’d die happy
Because you have lived in my heart.
