I tried to convey to you a message,
You seemed to listen, mind far away,
You responded to me, but it’s your assumption.
No, that’s not what I wanted to say.
I tried again to impart, words different,
You seemed to listen, nodding your head.
You gestured to me, of what you heard,
No, it’s a wrong picture you got.
The third time I tried, a smile on my face,
You looked at me, making a puzzled sigh.
You asked me questions,
Yes, there’s some attention to me you paid.
The fourth time I tried, a little spark in my eyes,
Holding your face in my hands.
Tell me what you heard that I said,
Oh my love, finally, we were on the same stand!
