I was thinking this morning about what I might have said, back then, if I'd been asked. What I might say if I'm asked tomorrow, or next week, or next year.
Because it would be really important to say the right things, you know?
I'm not sure that the actual words would really matter all that much. Not as long as the meaning and the passion behind those words was readily apparent. The words wouldn't need to really mean anything. Like a fist pounding on a podium, the words would only serve to add emphasis to the underlying meaning.
But still, emphasis has its place, I suppose. So I was thinking about what I might have said, and what I still might have the chance to say someday.
I should think about it some more, because so far the meaning is all that I have. It's always been enough for me, but for her I'll probably need some emphasis.
