‘Fact’ by Magi Gibson – a love poem for Valentine’s Day

ceramic heart coasters


I can no more say how much I love you
than number the stars in the midnight sky
I can no more say how much I love you
than count the grains of sand on a beach
catch the wind in my fist
shimmy with the northern lights
guess the name of a selkie child
or hear the song of a butterfly

yet in my heart I carry that vast love
massive, immeasurable though it be
every moment of every day

and am the lighter for it
