I Never Told You ©2016 Karen Potje

I lost the bracelet we bought in Paris and I never told you
A bit of ribbon, silver and sea glass, and I never told you
A little treasure. So nearly nothing
Anyway the silver tarnished and the silk had frayed
I never told you
You never notice little things anyway

I kept a picture tucked in my wallet and I never told you
Someone you met once. You won’t recall it so I never told you
A little longing. So nearly nothing that I told myself
You didn’t know his name
I never told you
You never notice little things anyway

Little things that I’ve misplaced, left a moment on the window sill
Smoothing lotion in my fingers till I don’t remember why I’m here
Little things I used to love slip forgotten from my skin
I never told you. They’re just little things

I lost the feeling somewhere behind us and I never told you.
I couldn’t give up trying to find us so I never told you
A little memory. So nearly nothing
Everybody knows that feelings can get worn and frayed
I never told you. You never notice little things anyway

Hanging by a thread, it must have slipped from my wrist
That didn’t make me feel lighter
Talking in my head instead of telling you like this
That doesn’t make me a liar
Broken bits of ribbon, broken bits of love
Twists of silver, dull and grey
I never told you such little things anyway

I lost the bracelet we bought in Paris and I never told you
A bit of ribbon, silver and sea glass. I never told you
A little treasure. So nearly nothing
Anyway the silver tarnished and the silk had frayed
I never told you
You never notice little things anyway
I never told you
You never notice anyway
