i wrote it down in case i might forget
how tall you made me feel
like i was towering over trees and buildings
(and you made it sound so easy).

now i'm wearing your strength
like a bright badge pinned to my chest
right there, you made me swear i would not forget.

i still remember that May
when a late frost taught me
that even the things we left for dead can resurface
and every step was magnified
by the sharpest snap that seemed to say
"your voice is still small, and will not carry anything"

and even the smallest words cling to the roof of my mouth
and i broke my promise again and again

it's all i can do, sitting here waiting
hoping the words will just fall out my mouth
like when you were around me

and all i need is to read what you told me
"everything else in the world disappears when your voice wraps around me"
