Once again I have forgotten the shape of my heart
If tomorrow I turned to stardust
There would be one thing I should regret
To not have said 3 words when our bodies last met

Though the hug has long since cooled
With the dilation of time and space
I hope this declaration retains its power
As words with neither voice nor face
I love you

It serves as a reminder to myself that it’s important to say the things in my heart even if no one will hear the words because tomorrow could come and I could die.
