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
