Hard to Say

It’s hard to say ‘I love you’
When words have turned to dust
When searing haze inflames the blaze
And chokes the skies of trust
 
Yet that’s the very moment –
Despite the silent blight
When all the best is laid to rest –
My love for you burns bright
 
It’s hard to hug and kiss you
When looks have turned to ice
When every gaze blocks out the rays
Of efforts to be nice
 
Yet that’s the very moment –
Despite the frosty chill
When mutual faith is like a wraith –
My love enfolds you still
 
It’s hard to say ‘I’m sorry’
When facing down defeat
When healing ways are like a maze
That’s full of dead-end streets
 
Yet that’s the very moment –
Despite still feeling sore
When all the pain is spent in vain –
I love you even more
