When you said I love you

When I first heard you say – ‘I love you’
I just stared
And I was scared Of being lonely
Of losing, before I even found you.

When I first heard you say – ‘I love you’
I had hoped I could say it you first
I prayed for the courage to look in to your eyes
Without turning them away lest you find them moist;

When I first heard you say – ‘I love you’
I wished…I just wished You had said it to me!
