Are You Here?

Your silence kills me more than the words you say
You hold my hand tightly but seem so far away
I asked you to be honest, didn’t I?

You’d like to keep your distance, that’s fine by me
Tell me what’s on your mind, I cannot wait till another “cup of coffee”
If it’s time, I will say good-bye.

You’ve drifted off somewhere, I stand alone at the shore.
There is no point in holding out any more.
