The words written on your lips
Were nothing but a murmur
When I read what they said
My heart stuttered
A response got caught inside my chest
I looked back at you, out of breath
When I saw your smile
Time slowed down
I could hear nothing
But the echo of my voice
Did you mean it?
Was all I could ask
You answered with a simple
Then my head went faint
And my heart sputtered back to life
I love you too
I replied
