She softly murmured, “No, baby, don’t say that”
She held her breath watching him in the eye
waiting impatiently for words she ached to listen,
It felt like a million years and he spoke,
“It’s been long, yet this is not right, it was all messed up
from the beginning”.
He could hardly hold her longing gaze, he turned away.
Regardless of all the emotions clouding her mind,
she had a thousand things to ask, to say,
always she knew the perfect words,
But now despite all that, all she could mumble was,
“Maybe I’ll look for you in every soul I meet”
