Because you asked

I sat there and wrote
Because you asked.
And you spoke while I listened
Because you asked.
I sang and you heard
And I failed
While you laughed.

Again and again
In front of familiar strangers.
I stand.
I open my mouth and fumble--
Because you asked.
Trust me I'm humbled
And each time it gets harder
But I slap on a smile
Walk up once again
All because you asked.

  1. Your writing is so beautiful. Yes, it's been about a year! I've been a bit brain dead. Work kicked my ass from here to yesterday, leaving no time for writing, blogging, or much of anything else. I am glad to see you still here, though.


I love your comments!
