Three Little Words

Three little words
Lifted my heart
When asked
What do you say
After eating with unstoppable relish
The bag of caramel popcorn
I brought
My two and half year old granddaughter
To my surprize
Did not say thank you
But stopped and thought for a second
And said
I love you wistfully instead.
My heart
Leapt with joy
That she shared
The love she felt
And returned
The love I have
When I gave her
The caramel popcorn
I would have devoured myself.
