I can never say I知 sorry
In a way my soul will hear
So I will say I love you
To stave away the fear

You will never read this poem
I値l keep it from you dear
I値l say I知 sorry one more time
Then shield your precious ear

For apologies will never do
To express my love for you
Nor a prayer deep in the night
Be enough to keep from fright

Be with me my God
As I speak today
Give me peace within my soul
And the words that I must say

Listen here my stubborn heart
You will do as you are told
Keep those floodgates open a crack
I知 much too young to feel so old

The marches are no longer wet
My love for them is drying
But there痴 a roaring river
And to hold it back I知 trying

Oh God bless the river bed
And send it back to you
I never wanted a secret
Nor a course that was untrue

So I will never say I知 sorry
In a way my soul will hear
I can only say I love you
To stave away the fear


To fly is to fall and miss the sidewalk
-Douglas Adams

"Listen here my stubborn heart

I especially enjoyed the above...and  there is more  importance in  saying I love you than some think.
