Three Little Words - Poem by Theresa Quinn

Three little words
One syllable each
Eight tiny letters
Six of them vowels

Words packed with power
To brighten our day
Taken for granted
As we go our own way
Except when we're hurting
Sad or blue
These three little words
Are precious though few

They comfort the soul
And soften the heart
And give life's journey
A fresh new start
We need to say
To loved ones near
And very far away
Because we never know
What the day may bring
And 'I love you'
Can make the difference
In everything!
