I love you.

These Three Words” by Stevie Wonder

When was the last time
That they heard you say
Mother, or father, I love you
And when was the last time
That they heard you say
Daughter, or son, I love you

Ones you say you cherish everyday
Can instantly be taken away
Then you’d say I know this can’t be true
When you never took the time
To simply tell them, “I love you”

When was the last time
That they heard you say
Sister, or brother, I love you
And when was the last time
That they heard you say
Darling, or best friend, I love you

The one for whom you’d give your very life
Could be taken in the twinkling of an eye
Through your tears you’d ask, “Why did you go?”
Knowing you didn’t always show
Just how much you loved them so

These three words
Sweet and simple
These three words
Short and kind
These three words
Always kindles
An aching heart to smile inside

I know a family
Who hasn’t a cent to their name
And, yet, the joy and love they have between them
They always claim
And when one’s called from life
The survived mourn the loss
And will never be the same
Yet, they rejoice
In knowing they gave them their all

These three words
Sweet and simple
These three words
Short and kind
These three words
Always kindles
An aching heart to smile inside
