I watch you falling through the trees,
Filtering through the leaves,
All so willing to fall with you.
I watch you find your way to my dreams,
Reminding me how it feels
To be willing to follow you,
I watch you from under my covers,
Afraid I might scare you.
I hold my breath as you glide and flutter,
Afraid I might intrude.
I want to tell you you’re beautiful,
But I don’t say a word.
I want to bring you joy, like you bring me
But I don’t know how to.
So I watch you from behind the curtain,
And I don’t say a word.
I listen as you hum your songs,
The music rising with the dawn,
As you sing about new beginnings.
I feel your embrace as you touch the world,
I forget how it feels to be numb
As you pull me out of hiding.
