I don't know that I want to be needed,
But I do know that I need to be wanted.
Loneliness isn't in being alone,
Loneliness is alone in being.
I don't very often write about love,
But then, I don't very often write about-
Things I've never experienced.
Pretend for a day that I am deaf and blind.
Now, how will you tell me you love me?
I don't want someone who'll just be with me,
But someone who'll want to just be with me.
You can tell me you love me a thousand times,
But I'd hear it better with just one touch.
The most precious gift you could ever give me-
Is a moment of your time.
But then, how could you ever afford it?
Understanding comes with effort,
And effort comes with caring;
Something most will never understand.
Love is more than just a word used too often,
But, too often, love is just a used word.
