To He Who Will Listen
However I try, there is no one I see;
Everyone's too busy to listen to me.
All have their problems, and so push me away;
Results are I just don't have too much to say.
Maybe, though, you're the one with a mindful ear,
Everything that I need for someone to hear.
Perhaps this is so, if it is, listen now:
Listening is the greatest gift one can allow.
Either you hear me, or just leave me instead,
And all my thoughts and dreams will be left unsaid.
Stay near, though, and you'll hear all I have inside--
Everything I create will no longer hide.
