For No One

He never could quite get the words out,
although she thought that sometimes
he said them all too well.
Perhaps he didn’t know what they’d mean,
but he knew the’ve already meant more
than anything ever has.
So, he held her hand tight,
stared deeply into her eyes,
and opened his mouth.
Out came the words,
“You are not alone.”
And he knew those words,
like their love,
would always be.
