Coz I didn’t know romance or sci-fi

I watched a few movies for us
 

Spent some “Nights in Rodanthe”

And waited for “One Day”

And thought of you “Before Sunrise”, “Before Sunset” and “Before Midnight”

 
Coz I didn’t know what songs you like

I listened to a few for us

I wasted time “Chasing Cars” around my head

And I “let you set the pace”

And I “stood at the end of the line” of all the world smitten by the magic of your eyes

 

Coz I don’t know what makes you happy or sad

I smiled and cried as I pleased

 

Coz I didn’t know if you linger in bed before you get up

I did that whenever I could

 

Coz I didn’t know your dreams and hopes

I built a few dreams and went after them

Hoping that I’d see them through

 

Coz I didn’t know if you liked the rain or fall

I walked in the rain and let it soak me

And another day, I watched the leaves fall to their own music

 

Coz I didn’t know if you’d prefer salsa or ballroom

So I just grooved to the music

 

Coz I didn’t know what you’d read

I read a few books for us

 

Coz I didn’t know if you like kids

I smiled at all I came across

And raised a few in my head

 

Coz I didn’t know if a hug means anything to you

I hugged everyone I could

 

Coz I didn’t know what fragrances

I saved the one that you used

And the one that I last wore the day we said goodbye

 

But I know if I open my tightly clenched fists

They are still empty

I have nothing of you

But all that I’ve built in my head

Do I wish that I had something…anything.. of you?

I don’t know anymore…

My heart is empty

As empty as my hands..
