If only you would listen
I’d love to share my heart with you –
But no, you seldom listen.
Before I’ve uttered ten words
You interrupt –
You’ve guessed the rest
And tell it back to me.
Or it reminds you
Of a bigger better yarn
That you must share immediately.
If only you would listen –
Forego your chance to show
How rich and full your life has been
You’d understand the way I feel –
    What makes me laugh
    And cry
    And disagree with you.
My hopes and dreams
Might make your life the richer
And draw us closer
If only you would listen.
