Those three words are so hard to say.
They rise up to the throat and remain stuck,
Expanding into mountains in my heart.
Those three words that are so hard to say,
Words that shoulder the weight of the heart,
Eventually becomes unsaid.
And yet I say it silently
To the heaves of your chest as you lay,
To the warmth of your embrace.
Silently, do you know?
The depth of my love.
