Protective Silence

I’ll tell you when I can
When my heart is sure
It protects itself from rejection
Doesn’t want to stand unwanted
I’ll tell you when I can
Afraid you’ll give a glib reply
Laugh at my affection
Think that I might be joking
I’ll tell you when I can
Perhaps in three days
Six months or a year
The courage will find me
I’ll tell you when I can
Or maybe I am waiting
For you to figure it out yourself
To realize that I love you
Even though I can’t say the words
