When I Say It
What It Really Means
It means in troubled times or in your deepest fear
I'll shelter and I'll comfort you with no tenderness to spare
It means that you're a success to me even when you fail
It means I sound triumphant cries each time that you prevail
It means as I have breath to live I'll always see you through
It means all this and so much more when I simply say,
" I love you."
It means no limits frame my joy because I see you smile
It means that sorrow shreds my heart when teardrops fill your eyes
It means the mountains tall, the sky stretched wide and oceans deep can't seal
A single grain within their bounds of the shoreline care I feel
Frustration cuts with searing pain for the words are just so few
I pray 'Dear God please let it all show' when I simply say,
"I love you."
