You Asked

You asked for so little in the times that we shared
You gave of yourself and always tried to hang there
You tried to smile and to give a caring embrace
You were something special as you showed you care.

In all the time we have spent going back and forth
You remained firm in the thought that we might be one
There were even times that I made it so difficult to see
Yet you tried as you would to say that it wasn’t done.

There were times that we thought it couldn’t be fixed
That to walk away and just let go would be better for all
Yet there was that connection that just wouldn’t let go
So with time and a smile, there would be a call.

You asked if I loved you and I have never stopped yet
I hold out my hand for yours and my heart reaches too
No matter what the future may bring as we stumble along
I leave what we share, what we have, what might be up to you.
