SIR

those nights I held you
I never said I love you…
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
you’d make love to me
like it was your birthright
I’d want darkness
you’d insist on the lamp light
I need to see you, you’d say
and thus when we touched
the honesty was too much
a love my eyes could not hide
I’d close them
lest you see the tears
of love at its euphoric height
later, wrapped in white sheets
you’d share
your wishes, your woes, your plight
you’d pour your heart out
I’d listen
don’t give up, I’d say
keep up the fight
it’ll all work out just right
then when
I’d play with your hair
until you’d fall sleep
I’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 you…
I should have
it was the right thing to do.
