Whisper

Whisper

 

Won’t you whisper the words my soul needs to hear?

Put everything aside,

the stress,

and come near.

 

Tell me I’m yours

like you did years ago

when you cautioned, protected

if someone came too close.

 

Tell me I’m pretty

there’s no one but me.

It’s petty, I know it

just say something please.

 

Hold me so close

I can’t hardly breathe.

Close the distance between us,

say something sweet.

 

I don’t care if you don’t mean it

You know what to say.

Try to remember that time

far away.

 

Nothing could stop you from grabbing me tight

we were younger, impatient

unwearied by life.

 

I’m older and different

in some ways, it’s true.

But that girl is still there

and still in love with you.

 

So put down the phone,

the people, your list.

Don’t walk away.

Just give me a kiss.

 

Don’t hesitate.

Put your lips to my ear,

and whisper the words

my soul needs to hear.
