I know you might stay silent ‘till the kingdom crashes
I know your quiet words may never again flutter past my
I know you might choose to stay aloof and all knowing…
Knowing how I failed you and your heart.
Only you knowing…
and me, of course, always and forever… sadly knowing.
I know my words,
might seem empty after all these years
But they are all I have left to reach you
And so I keep these tender urges safe
Holding them close, breathing life into them
Saving them for you.. and hoping.
