three words, part one.

You said you were scared
of those three little words
Couldn’t say it, didn’t try to
you’re scared to say
“I love you”.

You don’t have to tell me why
but I want to know who
Has hurt you so bad
that you’re scared to say
“I love you”.

Three words hold such meaning
say when you’re ready, I’ll say them back too
Hold your breath if you must
when you say
“I love you”.

This may sound silly
but I felt a warmth inside
I hope you feel it; I do
Your voice sounded like home when you said
“I love you”.

-b.h. (written sometime in 2017)
