i’m going to leave you a note
or a pretty bouquet.
something to show you what i can’t really say.
something to let you know that i care
that i don’t want to leave or walk out alone.
i’m going to leave you a song
or a simple melody.
something to ease your mourning.
something to brighten the gloom in the sky
to make your day full of sunshine.
i don’t know what to say
don’t know how to speak.
my mouth won’t open, my mind’s thoughts are fleet.
i can’t form the words, words i want to say
to let you know that i’ll care always.
so here’s a few words
a line to a song.
something to move your day along.
something to bring joy to the world
to take the place of speaking to you.
Because I can’t think of anything else to say.
There is nothing more to speak.
There is nothing else I can do.
Nothing to make what I feel come true.
