How?

Nikki K

Let's pretend that we had met,
Under different circumstances.
Nothing had been set,
We had to take chances.
How would you have approached me?
How would you have said hi?
You that have reproached me,
For being unable to say goodbye.

Let's think for a second,
That we aren't miles apart.
That the finger of fate has beckoned,
To give this another start.
How would you approach me?
How would you say hi?
You who have coached me,
In letting myself be I.

Understand that I am a mix,
Of whims and inconsistencies.
I'm not asking you to fix,
But to only recognize me.
How would you approach me?
How would you say hi?
You that have broached me,
To break our holy ties.

The years that I have spent,
The moments that I gave.
I find were only lent,
As I cry over my grave.
How would you approach me?
How would you say hi?
You that have poached me,
And now can't meet my eye.
