Now and then I look at you and see you changed
Not so kind or thoughtful, a little out of tune and frayed
I want you different; I want you with me so close and comforting
But most of all I want you agreeing.
I want you to see the world as I do,
Feel the world as I do
What’s wrong with you?
You upset me so, now and then,
When it feels there’s so little understanding
So little interest
When it feels I am not really here.
And maybe that’s the moment,
The moment when I feel so insecure
That I might begin to hate you,
That shakes me awake
Out of a losing dream and the losing thoughts that crept so silently in
And oh the flooding back of love, of gratitude and joy for all that is beyond
The rusty archive of my collected works
Hello, I’m back
Thank you for waiting.
