Everyone Says

A monster has taken a young one's innocence
"I love you" the monster says.
A man beats his wife
Later he says "I love you honey."
A mother abandons her children
Eighteen years later she says "I have always loved you."

A mother gives birth to a baby boy
"I love you" she whispers using her last breath.
A father gives his daughter away at a wedding
"I love you" he says when they reach the alter.
A teen mother gives birth to a baby girl
"I love you" she whispers as the adoption social worker leaves.

Everybody says "I love you"
Few know the meaning.
