He Doesn't Say He Loves Me



He doesn't say he loves me
Calls me tirelessly
When away from home I be.

He doesn't say he loves me
Enquires whether a tray I'd like
As cooped in bed I lie.

He doesn't say he loves me
Holding my hand firmly in his
In a crowded marketplace.

He doesn't say he loves me
We didn't do too badly, he says
Looking proudly at the dear young 'uns. 

He doesn't say he loves me
Mentions I looked lovelier than most
At the office party last night.

He doesn't say he loves me
Laughs away my moody quirks
After a hard day at work.

He doesn't say he loves me
Remembers the pretty white dress
At first-meet I wore.

He doesn't say he loves me
You smell nice today, he murmurs
Absently kissing me goodbye.

  4. A very honest poem from the heart. I would say, "He doesn't need to say that he loves you" :) :) action speaks louder than words.

  6. Kala, this is brilliant! This is love after nearly 8 years of marriage :) I'm talking about myself, of course.

  7. Sometimes or rather most often, actions speak louder than words. As writers we do tend to place a lot of weight in words though. Lovely weaving of verse, Kala.
