Three words
8 characters
2 spaces
and it means
I care...
I'm interested...
I'm here...
Always *I* am here for you!
It doesn't matter
whether you say
these words
to friends
or to
your lover
your partner
your spouse...
The meaning
remains the same...
Why do we say
"three LITTLE words"?
There's nothing little
about the feeling
in my heart when I say them..
For The Man I Love
You know I'm listening..
I worry with you...
I make time to be with you..
My eyes light up
The corners of my mouth smile
My stomach flips over
And I go crazy with worry when you're late
My world is brighter sharing it with you
For My Friends
You know I'm listening...
I cry when you're in pain
I hug you when you've overcome that obstacle
I want to hold your hand when you're sad
Laugh with you when you are happy
but always when I say
I Love You
it means
I am here
and
I am not going away!

I love you...

What does it mean to you?

You give but little when you give of your possessions. It is when you give of yourself that you truly give.

Jim: Yes, you spelt it correctly sweetheart...

HUGS

ILoveit

I'm sure it means something different to each of us or we have different ways of describing the feeling...I just took a few thoughts but certainly not all of them...there simply wouldn't be enough room but then, that's love, isn't it...endless!

Thank you, I love you too..

Thanks sweetheart, it is true that I care a lot about people but I can't, to be truthful, say that I love everyone...to me, loving someone is putting yourself on the line for them and that line is invisible, has no start nor an end, so I can't say that in all honesty I love everyone but I can say, I care and that I mean it...

Big hugs to you and congratulations, the suggestion box is great...oooops, I've yet to file my comments...*g*

Thank YOU for caring!

Hoot

Yep, that as well...

Ahh RG, too true that they are not little words, though they are often used too little.
Perhaps they are just inadequate to describe, the feeling that consumes one?
As you said, never enough time..

Actually, I would prefer to say, "You are loved by me" where the accent and the importance and the subject is you, not I, sweet Rainbow.

It means everything.
Wonderfully done.

being French; to me it means "je t'aime" ... ... it speaks of trust, of being one soul and body, of sharing laughs and tears ... it's finding the piece that makes you whole.

Christopher: I agree they are used too infrequently but also sometimes too often...hmmm, I suspect you know what I mean..

HUGS

Balladeer: I agree with you, the emphasis should be on 'you' and not 'I'..

HUSG

Michael: Well Mr Romantic...*g*..Thank you..

HUGS

JTF: Again, I agree....we really should stop agreeing like this..

Well, I can understand that poem . . . it says alot, and with feeling.
The nice thing is you don't need to know the person well to be able to say _\m/ <=== I Love You :-)

WhtDove: Thanks, I guess it's so hard for us all to define..

Rand al'Thor:

"you don't need to know the person well to be able to say _\m/ <=== I Love You :-)" Don't you? I thought loving someone was all about knowing them..

"You have not loved until you have experienced the pain"

I don't understand how we continue to love although it can sometimes hurt you. All Iknow is that I have given my all to it and even though it sometimes hurt I would do it again without a doubt. thanks rainbow girl, your HUGS always show the love you have for others.
