Those three words...

I think we say them too often ...
...and not often enough.
All at the same time.

Just like the kisses,
we shower on babies,
but withhold from adults.

Sometimes we say it heartfelt
... on accident or on purpose.
Sometimes we say it robotically,
quickly responding to someone else.

Sometimes it is a quick quip
at the end of the conversation.

Some people contemplate for a long time
before those words escape the lips.
Others blurt them out
like an explosion of the heart.

Does it mean the same all the time?

Does the meaning change
depending on intent
or how it is received?

Is it like Spanish where
you can love with
different words and significance?
