About the Poem
"I love you" may be the most misunderstood phrase in the world, but it is one of the most powerful. To me, saying "I love you" is like giving someone a gift box, which is full of joy. However, some people are uncomfortable with those words.
This poem was an attempt to relay my feelings in other words to a Doubting Thomas who questioned what I meant when I said, "I love you".

Let Me Not Say I Love You
|by Beth Hammontree
Let me not say I love you,
Although you know that it is true.
That phrase has been so much abused,
Misunderstood and over-used.
Let me say rather "I think you,
Breathe you, taste you, feel you, dream you,"
That you help make each day complete,
And life has never been so sweet.
