Another Word for Love

We breathe the word so frequently
I hope it ever resonates
like bells in my cathedral heart
whenever our feelings wed.

I've mentioned treasure , cherish, doting ,
fond , admire , and desire ,
prize , adore , amour , and more,
but what can mean as much as love ?

The thesaurus lends no advice.
Inventive terms might well suffice,
until we use all those up, too.
Perhaps I won't state I love you .

Instead, I'd show it every day.
My actions speak.
Hear what they say.
