It’s not what you say; it’s how you show it
It's how you show it!
You know I love you…
I always tell you how nice you look…
I’ve brought you flowers and cards before….
What are you talking about, I asked you to marry me right?...
I am sensitive to your needs and wants…
Have you heard any of these before?
How much more does it mean to you when your partner
male or female grabs you by the hand, just because, and never
utters a word. Walking by Rittenhouse Square, I saw an older
gentleman look over at his wife, touched her hand and also smiled.
She looked back at him and smiled too. Now, that’s how you show it!
Remember, when you saw that smile from across the room…
I’ve been around the world and back, looking and there in front
of me all the time, was the color of your smile.
How could I walk by? Why didn’t I realize with my own eyes,
all the time the beauty within was staring me in the face.
And made my heart feel safe, all captured in the color of your smile.
I feel in my heart this is the one. The one I want to spend the rest
of my life with. Spend the rest of my days and nights with. You
are mine and I am yours…
And all it took,
Was the color of your smile.
That’s how you show it!
You know she wears costume jewelry. As you walk down Sansom Street,
you saw those bangles, they were only $5.99… but, that’s how you show it.
She passed a store on Market Street and saw a tie sale. It’s not a pretty
tie, but, that’s how you show it. We can talk all day long, but, how do you
show you mean it. How do you show…. You thought of your special someone.
You know it doesn’t take a lot. Stop into a card shop on Market Street and for
.99¢ you can find a card that says, “Thinking of you.” Small things like that
is, how you show it. Maybe you’re not a card person. Call your other half and
say “I don’t want you to cook, I’m bringing in food and drink, put your feet up.
That’s how you show it.
Be creative, keep it simple and you’ll see it’s not what
you say, but, it’s how you show it.
