Many Words, a poem

Many Words

Many words may not be enough
to express one simple thought,
but if I say, ‘I love you,’
I think you will understand.

We misinterpret, do we not,
see what is not there,
see not what is there?
Yet, to say, ‘I love you,’

holds a core of universal
meaning. You will understand
and all the rest, the many words,
need never be spoken aloud.
