Not Yet Spoken but Expressed

There are things I mean to say;
But can't find the right moment, feeling, or way
Not yet spoken but expressed
Expressed in a look, a touch, or caressed

Your arm around me says it all
The sweeter you are the harder I fall
Kiss on the cheek, a hug good-bye
A smile, a laugh, that look in your eye

It will not ever need to be said
Just your touch has me fed
Love without the verbal words is best
Not spoken but expressed

Your hard look, my gentle touch, says it anyway
But "I love you," is all I have left to say

There is something about those three words that makes us want so bad to say them, but at the same time, we hold ourselves back. Been there for sure!! As long as you hold it inside, you will have that anticipation, which is kind of a good feeling when you think about it. I have found myself waiting for "the perfect moment" and I have missed it all too often.
