SIR

those nights I held you
I never said I love youโ€ฆ
I should have
it was the right thing to do
but I was too scared to lose you
after all who was I to you?
just a girl you barely knew
who that one night
happened to be with you
that one time
led to many more
until I was a habit
clandestine
my arms became your calm
over late nights
youโ€™d make love to me
like it was your birthright
Iโ€™d want darkness
youโ€™d insist on the lamp light
I need to see you, youโ€™d say
and thus when we touched
the honesty was too much
a love my eyes could not hide
Iโ€™d close them
lest you see the tears
of love at its euphoric height
later, wrapped in white sheets
youโ€™d share
your wishes, your woes, your plight
youโ€™d pour your heart out
Iโ€™d listen
donโ€™t give up, Iโ€™d say
keep up the fight
itโ€™ll all work out just right
then when
Iโ€™d play with your hair
until youโ€™d fall sleep
Iโ€™d think to myself
as I held you tight
no mention
of me, us
in your bigger picture
I had not even a small spotlight
after all who was I to you?
we were just two drifters
searching for the truth
a love or lover true
little did you see
I had found both in you
you went on to pursue
dreams of powder blue
somewhere in the shadows of time
I faded, I withdrew
I lost you
I never said I love youโ€ฆ
I should have
it was the right thing to do.
