I Wonder If He Knew You
I shouted into the tomb of refusals
It was as I feared
There was no sound
Not even an echo of my voice
Indifference had shuttered her memory
A response was not worthy of her existence
Yet finally a faint sound melted away the silence
For once the sad song was about me
It was a song I never cared for
Suddenly it had meaning
Because it was about you
But who played the notes you never heard?
Who wrote the words about a dream you never shared?
For once I wondered
How could a stranger know me so well
I wonder if he knew you too
