It’s not a Cliché

Tulips

Say I Love You

Don’t let a day go by without love

A word a smile a touch

Given over and over again

Like you favorite song it never grows old

Don’t let a day go by without love

One never knows what is to come

Breath takes only seconds to leave

The soul takes rise the body and is gone

Say I love you with a smile

Don’t let a day go by without love

A helping hand a word of encouragement

Light and fire to revive and lift the soul

Bring joy and happiness to all

Show you care say it with love

Don’t let a day go by without love

No matter how you feel

What’s said in anger pierces the heart

Draining out love’s reserves

Words of love are saved in the heart

Remembered for ever treasured gifts

Don’t let a day go by without love

  1. not an easy feeling to express without cliché or saccharine sentiment but you have linked it to life and that has made all the difference

  2. I say it all the time — to my husband especially (at night..never go to sleep without saying it)..to my kids (even though they are grown up), my grandkids (even if I have to say it first), and my friends (that one is a little harder to come out but I want them to know how I feel). And say you love whatever entity has placed you on this planet, for he/she/it has given you a chance to live.
