Three Words Left Unsaid

There are three words I want to say to you

I keep wondering if you'll say it too

But if I don't find the perfect way to say it, the perfect tone

I'll keep it to myself and myself alone.


Every possibility I already have thought about

But still, inside my head, there is some doubt

Should I go for it or should I not, the question remains

Will the response give my heart joy or will it give it pain?


Many sleepless nights just tossing and turning

Wanting to express the feelings that are burning

To the Lord above I ask answers and pray

Should I say to her the words that I hesitate to say?


Even now the thought lingers in my mind

Still searching for the answer that I can't find

Should I say it now or keep it to myself instead?

Until the answer comes, those three words will be left unsaid
