To you, love was about multitudes.

To me, love was inordinate.

I love you, I would say.

How much? you would ask.

【英语浪漫诗歌】 What I Would Tell You

I couldn’t find the words to answer you then. But they have found their way to me since. And this is
what I would tell you.

I would blanket the world in utter darkness;

I would pull back the veil of light and reveal to you a blinding crescendo of stars.

I would drain all the seven seas and ask you to count—one by one—every grain of sand that clings to the ocean floor.

I would tally the beat of every human heart that has echoed since the dawn of our becoming.

And as you look in awe at the sheer magnitude of my admission, I would take your hand in mine and tell you; if only you had let me, this is how much I could have loved you.
