We don’t have to say it
We already know the truth.
Don’t have to go on and on about feelings
Or say what we already knew.
When we do get around to “I love you”
We don’t declare it to the world
We speak of it softly, in private
Leaving our words, curled.
I’ll never be the one true thing;
I’ll never be your wife
But you can bet with all certainty
I’ll love you all my life.
