He does, He knows just what I need
Understands my awful, hurting greed
Knows words that softy make me heed
And gives, so freely, yes, indeed.

He translates these things into you
Has you do things I need you to
Like call to tell me you’re not blue
The reality that you care is true.

Yet, fighting, still, I turn away
Seldom believe the things you say
How now can words pave the way
Upon a path you’ve never strayed?

You hold me close, I turn within
Your fingers dancing on my skin
You can’t know how, you can’t know when
This flesh will learn to love again.

Bravely your hand still reaches out
Offered words from sloping mouth
A flickered thought knocks me about
Has this exchange caused you to doubt?
