Across the Wire

Perhaps we've spoken
a mere handful of times
but we talk
almost everyday

I've never held you
in my arms
but you've become part of me
and I refuse to go away

There are secrets you try
so hard to hide
but I know you and I understand
who you are
what you want
and the reasons
you don't want to convey

But these concerns that you bury
are no less true than mine
and I carry them safe here for you
because to me
you're as real
as the people I touch everyday

Someday it'll happen

We'll stand face to face
and you'll know what I know
those things I remember
who you are to me
those things that I wish I could say
