3 Little Words

As I say 3 little words,
Do I realize their effect?
I've said 3 little words didn't really mean anything.
How did they effect you?

I've said 3 little words

They hurt you.
They hurt you more than I could imagine.
As we sit and talk
Through the tears and sighs
Wishing you were by my side.
3 little words might have changed everything.
Hopin' things might be the same.
But they won't .
I ask myself.
How can 3 little words fix
Something that 3 little words caused?
But they do. They fix the hurt.
And I still love you.
