You Never Asked My Middle Name

Lyrics

You never asked my middle name.

You didn’t care, that was my fear.

I never asked you where you’d been.

You never made it very clear.

 

You never asked my middle name

Or even if I planned to stay.

I think you knew my love was true

And would never go away.

 

I know it’s small, but it’s just this –

I wish you knew things other missed.

We share with some, take off the mask

For those we love, if they just ask.

 

I once asked your middle name

And who you loved for all times.

I sent you poems from my heart,

Only words and silly rhymes.

 

You never shared your one true love

And John you said was your name.

Our time was short, a fleeting fling

And I would never be the same.

 

I know it’s small . . .

Be the first to know!
