Someone perfect always listened,
You were just too far away to hear,
And when they asked you to say it again,
You were to embarrassed and estranged to repeat.
But what if you did,
And they leaned in,
And your words bounced through their ears
Like shallow water over pebbles,
And maybe they smiled,
And maybe that made you smile,
And maybe that beautiful person,
Caught a glimpse of that lovable part you always hide.
I think you'd both like that,
But who am I to say...
