Just Say Just Hear

 

Just say
yes I’m sorry and
no I won’t do it again
just say
what’s right for right now and
what will be true tomorrow
you can’t fake it
you can’t make it
something it’s not.

Just hear
what the other person
has to say – it is a gift
like the sun, generous and sure
giving lift to the weighty
like night dreams again
because you didn’t listen

Just hear
what the other person
has to say – it is a gift
like the sun, generous and sure
giving lift to the weighty
like night dreams again
because you didn’t listen
the first time.

Just say,
Yes I’m sorry and
no I won’t do it again.
Just say
what’s right for right now and
what will be true tomorrow.
You can’t fake it
you can’t make it
something it’s not.
