These Three Words

This song is by Stevie Wonder and appears…

When was the last time that they heard you say
Mother or father I love you
And when was the last time that they heard you say
Daughter or son I love you
Ones you say you cherish everyday
Can instantly be taken away
Then you say I know this can't be true
When you never took the time to simply tell them I love
When was the last time that they heard you say
Sister or brother I love you
And when was the last time that they heard you say
Darling or best friend I love you
The one for whom you'd give your very life
Could be taken in the twinkling of an eye
Through your tears you'd ask why did you go
Knowing you didn't always show just how much you love them so
These three words sweet and simple
These three words short and kind
These three words always kindles
An aching heart to smile inside
I know a family who hasn't a cent to their name
And yet the joy and love they have between them
They always claim
And when ones called from life the surived morn the loss
And will never be the same
Yet the rejoice in knowing they gave them their all
These three words sweet and simple
These three words short and kind
These three words always kindles an aching heart
To smile inside
To smile inside
