143



There are times when I am sad

There are times when I am mad

So I stop and think of all the good I have

 

143 what does that mean to me

An expression its a feeling

It is a way of being

 

There are feelings I hide

There are feelings I keep deep inside

So I stop and think of words to express them

I start to write...

 

143 is more than a number

It is something we all hunger to hear

A feeling so unconditionally clear

 

There are times when I am happy

There are times when I am glad

So I stop and look past the barriers to see you

That person isn't all that bad...

 

143 is more than a number

Add them up they become 8

That is something great

 

There are times when I become quiet

There are times when I become silent

So I stop and think what these numbers mean to me

Who expressed them when I was in need

 

143 is more than a number

One is for I

Four is for LOVE

Three is for YOU

 

Now stop to think who said that to you.

 

Keep that number in your mind

See it with your two eyes

In the stranger next to you

Or the person you have known your whole life

 

Remember that I LOVE YOU
