I love what I must cling to
As well as what I must set free
I love the view of what has been
As well as what will be.
How can I say, “I love you,”
Without having said it thrice?
Yesterday your kiss was heaven.
Today it’s paradise.
Is there a difference in inflection?
Are the words stronger now, more sure?
If they sound the same day after day
Will the meaning still endure?
I love you. I love you. I love you.
Is it all the same?
Would the rose be any sweeter
If we gave it another name?
