As I watch the flower inside of you slowly die
because of words unspoken, I wonder why?
There are only four letters in this word's name,
yet the world is consumed by playing it's game.
With the use of this word you've been mislead.
This word for some is not easily said.
Each one of us feel we must be told
how one feels by using this word of old.
I can't live without you here by my side.
Like you without it, I too would surely die.
When you ripped it out of my inner soul
I know that I would never want to grow old.
Tho all these tears flowing down my cheek,
my feelings for you could never reach a peak.
Please, give me just one more chance, tonight,
so I can say ""I love you"" and set things right.
