A HARD TIME SAYING IT

I heard you when you told me you love me, and I know I didn't reply.

And now you sit there in silence, looking lost, and ready to cry.

But before the tears come please let me explain, because I don't want you to think I don't care.

Because you already have my mind, body, and soul...And my heart is almost there.

Believe me when love calls me, I will have no problem obeying it.

Because my actions show you that I love you, but right now I have a hard time saying it.

I'm glad you told me you love me, and you didn't question whether you should.

And I'm sorry that you've gotten there just a little sooner than I could.

But when I speak the words "I LOVE YOU", from my heart you'll know them to be true.

From nice to meet you, then I love you, and someday soon "I DO".

Even though I've never spoken the words, I have had no problem displaying it.

Because my actions show you that I love you, but right now I have a hard time saying it.

See I've been hurt so many times before, it makes it hard to shake this fear.

But as time goes by I'll be more willing to try, as long as you're still here.

But I do understand your feelings, because for you It's just not the same.

Because you can't classify my actions with a simple phrase, title or name.

But trust me please, I need you to know that the music of my heart will always be playing it.

Because my actions show you that I love you, but right now I have a hard time saying it.
