Cistercian BraveArtists: Ayden Kowalski – “I Never Said”
December 15, 2020
I Never Said
Fragile words I never said
Shadowed worlds inside my head
I hid it all from you instead.
A single touch I never shared
This thing called love, I never dared
I couldn’t try, I was too scared.
Diamond eyes, you’re in my nights.
I try to fly away, but I
Can’t seem to leave, I’m paralyzed.
And if I see you in the light
Will I believe, or will I shy
Away? I cannot say, I cannot say,
‘Cause what if you don’t?
I can’t say I care
‘Cause what if you won’t?
So, if you gave me a try
Would we end up side by side?
Or would you find that I’m not right?
A thousand nights might come to pass
You hold your children in your lap
Or are we not conceived for that?
I’ll think about you one cold night
When you’re finally out of sight
I’ll gaze up at the sky and say, “I want you.”
And when I find my life is right
I’ll glide through time, and I will bind
The stars into my palm and say, “I love you.”
