You said you loved me today,
And I felt myself sadden,
Because I knew I would probably,
Not hear it from you again.
Saying that is a commitment,
One I don’t think you know,
Because most of the people who say that to me,
In the end always go.
You said it bravely and casual,
As if you were born with the phrase,
But I am afraid to say it back,
Because you might leave one of these days.
You might figure out I’m hard,
Quirky, weird, and complicated,
But “I love you,”
You still said.
