I see you again
And one thing is certain
We cannot lift our eyes and reconnect
I wanted to make the first move
To make a stand
But you are back
And I a mere coward
We cannot say a single word
It is as if the past had never existed
And we are distant strangers
Lost in a sea of hesitation
And do I sense humiliation?
We cannot began to understand each other
If no one says a thing
If I am only left to think
Why should I encourage myself to hope?
Why should I try?
If I see you again
One thing is certain
I will not discourage you—I will listen
Because you are back
You are back
Even if it is only for a little while
