If these two words ceased to exist,
what would you say every other time you hurt me?
Whenever you storm out after a fight,
leaving me broken and on the verge of tears,
what would you say to soothe away my pain,
if these two words were not enough?
I know I love you, perhaps a bit too much,
maybe that is how I always end up back in your arms,
letting those same words sway me away.
But what if you couldn't always say you're sorry?
What would you do to heal this fragile heart you're so fond of breaking?
What else would you say?
