Words You Never Knew
I had words for you, from you
From the very start.
Words that danced around my brain
And sprang forth from my heart.
Things from Our First Night Together
And the second, and the last.
Things you never knew were there
Because you never asked.
You applied your heat to me
And thawed the Glacier that was my heart,
And I was fearful of the end of us
Right from the very start.
There are endless words within me
But you chose to let me go,
So those words I would have written for you, from you
We will never get to know.
Yet you’re the reason these words are here now
For all the world to see.
You gave me courage, strength, and love
And then you set me free.
