I love you

“If everybody said it to
  The person that they feel it for
  Then their hearts would be full and free”
    ~ Joan Armatrading, “Shapes and Sizes” from the album What’s Inside (1995)

say it
if it’s sincere
say it
because you feel it
say it
as trite as it may sound
say it
though everyone else says it
say it
even though not everyone means it
say it
you’re not everyone
say it
look her or him in the eye
say it
and mean it
say it
knowing your word has power
say it
don’t worry about building up to it
say it
maybe first say “I’ve wanted to tell you this for awhile”
say it
then maybe say “I just wanted you to know”
say it
if you dream it you can
say it
though you may face rejection
say it
even if it could mean you must move on afterwards
say it
whatever the result
say it
never mind the rabbit hole toward which relationship can take you
say it
learn to trust
say it
it may be more than welcome
say it
there could be a deep need to hear it
say it
you might never get another chance
say it
since when are you guaranteed to see each other again
say it
despite all consequences
say it
open up
say it
let all be known
say it
how bad can it be
say it
bare your soul
say it
clear up any misconception
say it
feel the magic
say it
no more hesitation
say it
no fear
say it
nothing stops you
say it
please
say it
for heaven’s sake
say it

Thanks always returns
