Do you see now?
I cradle my heart gently,
rock it, like soothing a babe to sleep,
or comforting a sad child,
or a weeping friend.
Do you see now why I rock my heart?
When I think of what could have happened,
if that did happen.
Do you see now why I cradle my heart in silence?
A small sun,
blazing with feeling,
Do you see now why my lips are sealed?
A stray thought creeps into my mind,
I see you,
and a girl,
and not me.
You see now why I am cradling my heart at the thought of that future.
