• You call my name softly
    I hear you but do not turn
    You ask why I don't look at you
    I answer, yet not in words
    You grab my shoulder
    I stop
    You turn my body around
    And see the tears running
    Suddenly, you understand
    As you let me go you wonder if I'll be ok
    You call my name once more
    Whispering three words you turn away
    Because you turned you couldn't see me
    I ran back to you
    As I caught up you turned
    And I realized
    It was hopeless
