She’s in the shower, I have a moment to reflect,
does she know how I feel, do I show her respect?
When was the last time, I uttered that word?
Did I start to say it or was my speech slurred?
It’s so easy to share one’s feelings, in time of passion,
or when we want to show someone a little compassion.
But, in our daily life, it is more difficult to share,
which can lead one to believe, that we don’t care.
Why is so difficult for one to utter, four simple letters,
you would think my tongue, is bound with fetters.
As she leaves the apartment, the word is long overdue,
My heart speaks through my lips, “I L-O-V-E you!”
