Three word inadequacy

When I tell you that I love you,
Can you know just how I feel?
Would three words only let you know
The deep emotions I reveal?

Would they tell of my respect for you
Would your beauty be proclaimed?
Would they speak of admiration, too?
And so much more I've not yet named?

Would you know the lengths to which I'd go
Just so that I might hold your hand?
And without hesitation do
What situations would demand?

I think that it would be too much
To believe that three words could convey
How I feel, just as such
So here's what I must say.

My feelings every moment grow
With love proportions so immense
Passion powerfully burning so;
A supernova's less intense.
