I Love You...But I Don't

The looks you give
The laughs we have
The smiles you share
The jokes no one gets

All amounts to what?

I love you
But I don’t.

All the times you’ve made me laugh
All the times you’ve given me a smile
All the times you’ve changed my day
All the times you’ve built my trust

All amounts to what?

I love you
But I don’t.

You bring me joy
You build my faith
You erase sad thoughts
You get me through my day

But it all amounts to what?

I love you
But I don’t.

As simple as a touch
As simple as a glance
As simple as a word
As simple as a thought

All amounting to what?

I love you…
But I don’t.

You’re my brother in Christ, and I love you.
You’re my best friend, and I love you.
But even with all of that…I don’t.
