These are the most abused and misused words.
Sometimes you have to say these not to neither make other hurt nor feel bad,
It’s just for them to feel happy and contented.

Phrase often say by lovers.
But behind these words, many people get hurt.
So make it sure to tell these words to a true person
Not to the one as if he’s a stone.

These are such three words hard to say when you really feel it’s true.
Hesitation and confusion are always there.
You don’t know what he’ll respond if you confessed.
You may be rejected or be accepted.
We don’t know.
But one thing is for sure,
It will lessen your burden and frustrations.

Sometimes we really don’t like to hear those words anymore
For you already hurt once
And you don’t want to feel it twice as much.

It can not only express in words but also in deeds.
Showing it is much sweeter than telling it.

No one can really say that phrase very truly.
And you only want to hear it from the one your in-love with madly deeply.

However, these are the most wonderful words to hear
From the one you truly dear.
You’ll feel you’re in heaven
Right beside your angel.

Saying “I love you” doesn’t only mean romantic.
It can be platonic.
For family and friends
It’s the way of expressing concern
And how much you care.

It cannot only make people happy.
Oftentimes, it hurts.
Especially when you discovered
Everything was just a lie.

Every time you hear these words,
You don’t know where it came from.
You cannot be sure if it’s really comes from the heart.
You can easily hear this as a joke.

But there’s always good in telling it even by joke.
It may not meant full, who cares?
It’s half meant anyway.

Sometimes you have to spill it as a joke
Mostly when you are coward
Not to figure out what you really feel
Even if deep inside, you really mean it.

Anyhow, it can give you a lesson
That you cannot trust everybody.
It’s not always the one you love who loves you too.
And not your whole life the one you love will love you.
You can never tell.
And there is always a silent lover who is always there.
They are not leaving until you notice him.

Lastly, we oftentimes say goodbye to the one we love without wanting to.
But it doesn’t mean we stop to care or we stop loving them.
Sometimes goodbye is the most painful way to say “I love you.”
