On a daily basis a dozen times,
I repeat a phrase that bolsters my soul,
Often in a way that gleefully chimes
And without these words, I would not feel whole.

I can remember when I did not know,
How very vital this saying could be,
Not only its meaning, but how to show,
Became a great epiphany to me.

Divine intervention softened my shell,
Yes, eventually I saw the light,
On three simple words I began to dwell
And saying them often just seemed so right.

Granted they are uttered to just a few,
I never neglect the words, “I love you.”
