The Words We Say - Poem by Bill Simmons

She took her heart and laid it out
Professed her love, can’t live without
Then waited for the words he would say,
Then suddenly like from the blue
Like thunder she often knew
It came, a tear upon her face

She could feel it so inside
She could see it, not in his eyes
Oh now, what could she do,
So she laughed and carried on
Pretending a game, he played along
But she thought of herself, oh such a fool

Oh the game of love we play
I love you, the words we say
And suddenly our world’s turned upside down,
Then the heart it hides the truth
The emotions, feelings, inside you
When somehow what we thought was not found

Then we deny our love
That so much we so dreamed of
Then walk away as so often we do,
Pretending we didn’t say
Pretending as we walk away
Pretending we didn’t say, I love you.
