The Wind Gusts

Please
speak louder
I can’t hear you
over this wind
You’re too soft
much too soft
not nearly loud enough
to be heard over this wind
It’s a soft shock
when you touch my arm
I’m stung for a second
what is this?
You open your mouth again
trying to explain
I still can’t hear you…

You looked to the sky
think about jumping in
why don’t you
what’s wrong?
It’s easy
follow me
I’ll teach you to fly
I’ll show you how to be
A part of the wind

Shout
It won’t make a difference
if you don’t try
you won’t be heard
Pout
it still isn’t the same
you just have to try
just try
It’ll sweep you out
right off your feet
just jump
and believe
Jump!

Please
speak louder
I can’t hear you
over this wind
You’re too soft
much too soft
not nearly loud enough
to be heard over this wind
Shout
I still can’t hear you
don’t get mad
this wind carries your voice
Come here
closer still
now isn’t that better?
I can hear you now
