'I love you'

'I love you' is not something that I find easy to express to people I have definite love for.
People I love deeply can attest to how rare it is that I vocalise my love for them.

But in the face of new life and probable death,
Upon hearing your loved one, on the phone, holding their breaths in an attempt to will the pain away,
My brain and my heart came together,
And my tongue slipped the 3 words as easily as a skier cruising down a steep slope of snow,
Sliding on my tongue and out my lips,
Conveying my love,
Moving beyond the telephone wires that kept us apart,
Reaching the heart of my loved one at the other end of the line.

"I love you, I love you, I love you"

I cannot seem to say it enough.

I love you.
Be safe.

I love you.
I'll see you soon.

I love you.
I love you.
I love you.
