My brain in your hand

As the thoughts slip

Past your wedding band

Heart beats will skip

As they roll in the sand


My voice cracks like an old record

When I say your name out loud

"I love," Your name as the next word

Is it time to say it proud?


The letters stumble off my tongue

Tasting rusty, tasting wrong

But I've got time, we're still young

I know, I know it's not wrong

I know, I know I'm not wrong
