If you were here

today

I would hold

not your hand

not even the hem of your coat.

I would hold

your words  in my ears

until your words filled them up

spilling out

my hands would collect them

nest them  carefully

I would place them

in

my heart.

No matter how many and

especially if you

said a lot  of them.

words.

Are more than a sound

if you were to say them to me.
