Pardon my heart if I should die before I wake
you up and leave without goodbyes too often
I forget that nothing happened
between us there is an understanding
a date, a time, a place evaporates in the heat
of the moment I can say nothing because it is over
the counter-crying, the normal stock
denial is so futile I swore
on my mother’s grave concern
I can say nothing.
