If I...

If I screamed

would you listen?

If I cried for help

would you come to my aid?

If I begged you please

would you spare me a glance?

 

A hello in the hall?

A bit of your time?

 

No, of course not.

 

If I vanished

would you search?

If I died

would you cry?

If I spoke my heart

would you tell me I'm wrong?

 

A hand to hold

A shoulder to cry on

 

Only temporarily

 

If I went missing

would you miss me?

Or would you be so

consumed in your own life

and better things

you wouldn't notice

until it was too late

to change?

 

I know what you'll say

The answer is the same:

 

"Yes, of course I would"

 

Actions speak louder than words

The End
