To An Old Man

Words quiet
Words kind
Words never heard
You looked at me
But you must be blind
How could you not see
The words I needed most
You don't touch me
You can't
I am long ago lost
But I know
There are days
When you have no choice
You remember

As you must
Children left
Buried in the past
But I know

I know
What you won't admit
There was another life
Buried in the past
