To Know You

FROM THE 2012 THREE TWELVE ALBUM, SOMETHING BEGUN
W&M ©2011 DAVID M. GLASGOW (ASCAP) • DAVIDMGLASGOW.COM

Hello, friend. How are you?
It’s been a while since we last talked about
anything that really matters.
I know that time flies.
That “someday” we keep promising ourselves
keeps hiding just behind the next
anything that we can find
to work our way to peace of mind.
We’ve never found it yet.

Don’t forget that
everything you do adds up to less than you.
There’s so much more to see—so much more to love.
If you could take a step outside your shell of doubt,
you’d love you like I do. It’s true:
I don’t know how you don’t see
all the things that make me proud to know you.

Yes, it’s great to think of nothing but the coffee:
dark and rich for you, mine with milk and amaretto.
What is it that we think we have to hide from?
What are we ashamed of? We punched out hours ago.
“Yes,” I say, “I know, I see, that things get done and humans be.
But peace is hard to find.”

Then you remind me:
“Everything you do adds up to less than you.
There’s so much more to see—so much more to love.
If you could take a step outside your shell of doubt,
you’d love you like I do. It’s true:
I don’t know how you don’t see
all the things that make me proud to know you.”
