I May Not Tell You I Love You

I May Not Tell You I Love You

 Carole Parkes

I may not tell you I love you

Perfect husband of many years,

But you see the peaceful calm we have

And also the lack of tears.

 

I may not tell you I love you

Precious children who are now grown,

Yet you knew it from my behaviour

The same way you treat your own.

 

I cannot tell you I love you

My dear parents sadly deceased,

Yet, you knew it from the care I gave

That my loving never ceased.

 

I may not tell you I love you

But you all know it in your hearts,

The  fond memories you relate,

proof enough when the chatting starts.

    1. Thank you, Kathleen! When my 3 boys got to the stage where they didn’t want to be hugged, I stopped doing it. Now they’re married and have children of their own, they have started hugging me. I didn’t realize how much I missed it. It’s just lovely that they made the first move to hug again, so now I feel I can hug them without causing them embarrassment.
