Rendered Speechless
It's the middle of the night and the only sound is your breathing as you doze after loving again.
I should be sleeping, but my senses are humming with life and reliving the memories of when we began.
You came to me out of a fog of loneliness and confusion, leading me to light and joy of life.
We are together in a time and place I could not conceive until you brought me here that night.
You turn in your slumber and reach for me, not finding me there; the bed too wide,
and I am filled with the knowing it is me you seek  in your sleep, wanting me by your side.
My vigil over you is a tender mercy which my heart keeps a secret from the morning sun.
This time is sacred to myself; I cherish the wonder of it till night hours are done.
I don't want you to ever know that I watch till dawn as you lie sleeping this way,
for you would ask why I love you so, and from all the words in the world, I wouldn't know what to say.

yes, poets have a special vocabulary...and have access to all of the words on the topic of love...but in this case being rendered speechless says more than words could ever say...for that "condition of the heart" brought forth this beauty!
