Actions Speak Louder Than Words

You say you love me

But I have my doubts

You don’t do the little things anymore

Like holding my hand

Or a night out just because

You barely kiss me

Just a quick peck on the way out the door

And the addition of a hug at bedtime

Even the time to be intimate

Is fading away to nothing

Not ever a deep kiss

Or a caress of desire

You say you love me

But I have my doubts

I Tried, You Didn’t

I wonder
I think
I guess
Why are you gone
Why can I not forget
Why do I feel guilty
I know you were sick
I know you needed help
I know you didn’t get it
I will never have answers
I will forever have doubts
I will miss you the rest of my life
