i said i love you

i said i love you

i said i love you
but not how strong
right now 
i love you
but not all the day long.

must i lie
pretend to be shy
and give you a teddy
for you to wear on your sleeves? 

i said i love you 
but not that much
to give up and flush
all of my dreams
as small as they seem
to follow your highlight reel.

I said I love you
take it or leave
to make room then
for someone who believes.
