when i whispered in your ear, you listen to me.
when i asked if you heard me,you answered.
when i smiled for your kindness, you smiled back.
when i cried on your shoulder, you snuggled closer.
when i turned up my face, you whipped it dry.
when i was too weak to stand, you propped me up.
when i thought i'd be to weak to walk, you nudged me to it.
whenever i'd stumble, you'd steady my steps.
when i walked with ease, you walked me to all the beauties i should see.
when i was in awe, you joined me.
when i was inspired, you enjoyed the my work.
when i thanked you, you thanked me.
when i smiled again, you took my hand.
when i gripped it tighter,you pulled me closer.
when i closed my eyes to enjoy your touch,you kissed me.
when i kissed you back, you took me in your embrace.
when i never wanted you to let go, you pushed me back.
when my face sadden, you cupped my cheek and smiled.
when i asked you why, you said nothing.
when i reached for you, you pulled away.
this time when i cried, you walked away.

when I saw myself alone again, I said "...and that's the reason why."
