Even Now


Even now
I can hear my heartbeat in my ears
the need to get the words out
before it’s too late

Even now
there’s so much more I want to tell you
in the midnight confessional
the silent return

Even now
I wish I could see through your eyes
standing on the shore with the boatman
looking back over your shoulder

Even now
Even still

I always think of you when I least expect it
like a flash in my periphery
that draws my eye
and I sit there, rapt for a while searching
searching for what’s no longer there

Even now
Even still
