So Long

You question why I do not say
The words you long to hear:
Three little words, I find so hard
To speak them yet, I fear.

It’s been so long and I’m afraid
To let my feelings show,
But while you sleep, I whisper them
So all your dreams may know.

  9. short and sweet! never had this particular fear, in fact hubby said I said it too easily and too often. He was always one to SHOW and not say it. After 45 years, I’ve come to appreciate that.

  11. Holding back and letting go…in whispers.

    1. Yeah, I don’t know why, but I have a thing about whispers. I think it may be partly because they remind me of whiskers. Whiskers whispering wistfully. πŸ™‚

  12. Beautiful….I whisper them into the wind, hoping they will be delivered.

    1. Ah, yes, we all hope our messages will be delivered in some way or another. πŸ™‚

  34. I did this just last week! Late at night, I could hear the deep, slow breathing as I snuggled up nice and close. Then I whispered those three scary words… all my dog did was roll over and lick me! He’s such a romantic πŸ˜›

    Another magical tale, Miss Cubby. Even though I only began reading your blog tonight, I want to say… keep them coming!

    1. Rofl your dog sounds like he returns your affections. πŸ™‚

  35. This, not your beautiful poetry per se, but the effect it induces in the reader’s mind and soul, is, to me, what poetry is all about.

    1. Yes, I agree wholeheartedly with your take on poetry, about it being the impact and not the words themselves necessarily. Thank you so much for your lovely thoughts. πŸ™‚
