Three Words
- Geeia Lynn Brodsky Habing(1970-)

    So scary
    Are those three words
    Words spoken in passion,
    Spoken in a whisper.
    At one precise moment
    They feel so true
    So right.
    Some use them casually
    In their everyday chatter,
    But I find them sacred.
    I can speak them only
    When I'm certain.
    I will not use them in vain.
    They've been spoken to me before
    Under the shroud of darkness
    Beneath a warm touch,
    But never before did they ring true.
    Never before did they grab my heart
    And caress it
    With the magic
    Of a pure soul.
    Never before have they been sincere enough
    To have my lips echo their syllables
    In the most meaningful sentence
    I could ever speak.
    Those three words
    Are only for you.
