Me Around You

1968




I
Am
Only
Me around you.

Never have talked much before
Or done anything much before
Never could drag it out.

But, now,
The words are coming slowly to me,
A smile inside
When you're around,
And the rest of the time, too.

It seems
That while my eyes were closed
You just reached out,
And, kissed me.
