I Love You?

Sometimes the words just don’t rise,
sometimes they spit out, and take us both by surprise,
and it makes me wonder all the time,
is there a point to this emotional climb?

“I love you,” such a simple phrase,
has had us both confused for days,
do we mean it? Are we old enough to know?
But I know for sure these feels still grow.

Is there just one love in this life?
Could you one day take me for your wife?
Why am I left so confused?
Will I be left just feeling used?
