I hear your whispers in every corner of this house
and I feel your voice following me with every step

Your words still fall out of your mouth
for only me to catch

And you still wrap your breath
around my name like only you can

So I whisper back and tell you how our room stares at me
taunting me and reminding me

Of the last time you tucked me in
and watched me fall asleep just so I’d feel safe

And I tell you how I thought I’d never say
that you and me could ever have a last kiss

But you respond in riddles that I can’t decipher
without your eyes there to look back at mine

So I keep the conversation running because
I can’t exist without the other half of me

And only through your words
do I get as close to whole as I can be
