Reply: I love you/1000 words

...a love poem that has literally thousand words. I am not sure, but I believe that the title is “I Love You”. Any ideas on how / where I can find it???

Nope, couldn't find it, although I have heard talk of one existing.
Closest I have found is the following, a greeting card:

A Thousand Words Couldn't Express

A thousand words could never express the amount of love I have for you.
The ocean could never hold the tears that I have cried, because I need you.
The sky could never hold all of the stars that I have made a wish upon, wishing you were here with me.
You are my heartbeat... my soul mate... my life.
I hope you understand the true meaning and greatness of these three simple words...

I love you.

Would like to see the thousand word love poem if anyone has it.

Nasha- thanks for looking. We will find it one day. I will post it as soon as I find it.

I don't know if this will help our search...this is what I remember of the poem.

1) .....if this be your need.

2) I will lie down naked beside you......

3) when I say I love you I have said a thousand words. (this line I think is toward the end of the poem)

'Spectrum of Love'

There is a much greater motivation than simply my spoken words.

For me to love, is to commit myself, freely and without reservation. I am
sincerely interested in your happiness and well being. Whatever your needs are,
I will try to fulfill them and will bend in my values depending on the
importance of your need. If you are lonely and need me, I will be there. If in
that loneliness you need to talk, I will listen. If you need to listen, I will
talk. If you need the strength of human touch, I will touch you. If you need to
be held, I will hold you. I will lie naked in body with you if that be your
need. If you need fulfillment of the flesh, I will give you that also, but only
through my love.

I will try to be constant with you so that you will understand the core of my
personality and from that understanding you can gain strength and security that
I am acting as me. I may falter with my moods. I may project, at times, a
strangeness that is alien to you which may bewilder or frighten you. There will
be times when you question my motives. But because people are never constant
and are as changeable as the seasons, I will try to build up within you a faith
in my fundamental attitude and show you that my inconsistency is only for the
moment and not a lasting part of me. I will show you love now. Each and every
day, for each day is a lifetime. Every day we live, we learn more how to love.
I will not defer my love nor neglect it, for if I wait until tomorrow, tomorrow
never comes. It is like a cloud in the sky, passing by. They always do, you

If I give you kindness and understanding, then I will receive your faith. If I
give hate and dishonesty, I will receive your distrust. If I give you fear and
am afraid, you will become afraid and fear me. I will give to you what I need
to receive.

The degree of love I give is determined by my own capability. My capability is
determined by the environment of my past existence and my understanding of
love, truth and God. My understanding is determined by my parents, friends,
places I have lived and been. Each experience is fed into my mind from living.

I will give you as much love as I can. If you show me how to give more, then I
will give more. I can only give as much as you need to receive or allow me to
give. If you receive all I can give, then my love is endless and fulfilled. If
you receive a portion (part) of my love, then I will give others the balance I
am capable of giving. I must give all that I have, being what I am.

Love is universal. Love is the movement of life. I have loved a boy, a girl, my
parents, art, nature. All things in life I find beautiful. No human being or
society has the right to condemn any kind of love I feel or my way of
expressing it, if I am sincere; sincerity being the honest realization of
myself without hurt or pain for my life or any life my life touches.

I want to become a truly loving spirit. Let my words, if I must speak, become
the restoration of your soul. But when speech is silent, does a man project the
great depth of his sensitivity. When I touch you, or kiss you, or hold you, I
am saying a thousand words.

Jag, I'm going to have to read this a couple of times for it to sink in - I'll comment on the poem when I've had a bit of a think on it. Is this the definitive 1000 word love poem then? If it is then it's quite a find!

Thank-you for posting
