Damaged

Do you remember?

Not so very long ago it was

Me who stole your time and

Had stolen moments to spend

Just talking to you listening

To the words instead of

The meaning

Now the silence stretches

Ever onward

Away from the rent torn

In our hearts and minds

I'm sorry I never realized

How damaged you were

That you didn't know that

You didn't need to be

Anything more than yourself

All of the signs were there

In my naiveté I didn't see them until

It was too late to save

You
