I rarely hear a love song
and think it's from me to you.
I don't know why.
Maybe I'm just different or
maybe it's because
I write love songs for you
all the time.

I used to imagine
all love songs
were written for me.
I reveled in the idea
that someone loved me
enough to pour out their heart
to the whole world.

You don't write love songs,
but I know you love me.
I still believe that
all my favorite love songs
come from your heart,
beautiful music echoing
through infinity.
