Actions Speak Louder Than Words

Here's a poem I wrote for the PAD challenge:

Actions Speak Louder Than Words

There are many ways
to say "I love you,"
like "Je t'aime,"
or "Te amo,"
or "Ti voglio bene."

But perhaps the sweetest way
to show your love for thee,
is to do thoughtful things;
for action is proof
of love you can see.

A thoughtful note,
in praise of your loved one,
or a picnic for two;
out in the sun,
walking hand in hand
through good times and bad,
being the one to lift
spirits that are sad.
A song sung or
poem written for thee;
all of these things
make our love
a lasting memory.

Very nice! I like it. It has good meter to it!

Yes, it is the actions of love that make the confirmation and lasting memories. When miles are in the way and a budget is low, phone calls and texts and emails are actions of love too. Nice poem :)!
