April 10

you strolled into my life
when I was asking why
every mountain I’d climbed
was never too high
every bridge I’d crossed
was never too long
every mistake I made
was never quite wrong

if I could keep you now
when I am wondering why
every door left open
always slams with goodbye
every kiss I’ve left
always fades from her lips
every promise I’ve made
disappears from the scripts

you give me good reason
when I am trusting why
every heartbeat shared
doesn’t feel like a lie
every touch of your hand
is like a summer breeze
every glance exchanged
makes me weak in my knees

to trust again
in love once more
it’s a broken path
with broken doors
I do not know
if I remember the way
if I take this chance
will you know how to stay?
