to be loved by anelephantcant

it is nice to be loved you tell me
I don’t know if that is true
there is no one on earth who loves me
the way that I love you

it is nice to be loved you tell me
I say it each day we’re apart
you never answer those three words
it almost breaks my heart

it is nice to be loved you tell me
as you smile in your sweet way
it’s no surprise to any one
I loved you that very first day

it is nice to be loved you tell me
I hear you laughing down the line
I am glad I make you happy
I wish that you were mine

it is nice to be loved you tell me
by friends and family too
I have no one quite like that
I just want to be loved by you

  1. Love is the most confusing of all things, but the most precious. It’s a rare gift to give love and poetry so freely. It touches my heart.

    I think I hear a melody behind this piece
    The repeated line of course lends itself to that.
    Well done mon ami.
