What’s Stopping You?

You are there holding your lover’s hand

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.
