Speak Again

Woke up to some bad news

But I had things to do

Didn’t mean to seem unkind

I had you on my mind


It happened while I slept

You were taken away

Not conscious to accept

The way things are today


I carried on

And I told no-one

For hours

And then, still only one


Didn’t really say anything

Or even know to whom it was


And I said, “Much love” to you

Just to be seen to care

Those words were only ripples in the air


It felt so cheap

And you’re not cheap

Cheap people are not dear to me as friends


Even though we might not speak again

I’ll have you on my mind
