The Words Won’t Come

I really think I should be saying something

but the words wont come

Guess I am shocked or surprised

Or a little of both besides

So much I want to say

but the words won’t come

I find I am in a calm silence

Perhaps the one before the storm?

Who knows? but I know

the words will not come

Perhaps something inside me

is simply broken?

Perhaps I have just understood

And am resigned to what will be

Since I cannot make you see

and the words will not come

Perhaps its just that things are so clear

That I will always hold you dear

Perhaps just that its so obvious

That you now seem oblivious

that my words would be wasted anyway

And there is little that I can say

It’s written on my face

Just in case

the words never come
