3 Words

January 23, 2009
By Bethany Nelson, Mashpee, MA

your heart fills
with love and compassion
you didn't know possible

the smile on a face
the love in a heart
the fear in saying those 3 words
the satisfaction of when those 3 words
are said that the person saying them
or hearing them honestly means them

your heart now fills with
love and compassion
you have now witnessed possible.

The author's comments:
this poem was inspired..
when my heart was broken i felt nothing would ever make me happy. that falling inlove would ever happen again.. that letting my guard down and saying those 3 words would be the scariest thing i would ever have to experience again. but then i met a guy who treated me the right way who showed me affection and made me feel like i had a purpose in somebody's life.. that i was good enough. this poem goes out to him.
