What’s stoping you from telling them ‘I Love You’?
You’re on the phone with your best friend
What’s stopping you from telling them ‘I Treasure You’?
You’re listening to your mom talk about her housing tips
What’s stopping you from telling her ‘I Miss You’?
In the darkest of hours you will recall them
Cherish the memories left in your mind
You will decorate your pictures and your scrapbooks
And yet you will hold back from saying it out loud
You won’t let yourself get more intimate
With the people whose presence fills your life
And yet when they are no more there
They are all you will think of.
