Taken To Heart

You by me
That’s all I’ve ever asked for
And I have it
...Thank you

Standing with your arms around me
(still) I miss you
And just because I’ve got this
doesn’t mean I get to keep it

Feeling responsible for this conversation
going nowhere
But you smile through a stare
Wasted breath in my face

...Worth remembering
Saying nothing (everything)
And I’m grateful to have caught
eyes that understand

I’m touching love with dirty hands
But no one else knows
And you don’t mind
...Now I know why
