A minute so we can talk

I swear it won’t take long.

For I know you have somewhere to be

and I don’t want to waste your time.

But, the minute I open my mouth I see a light go on  in your eyes and I know this time you will listen.

As a minute turns into five because I’m no longer talking but you are and it’s like finally everything clicks again.

Were connected to the point that life doesn’t seem to bad.

And just maybe this time things will stick and not fall apart so quickly.
