What I Need

My jacket is hanging on the wall.
I went out and saw the sunrise today.
No one remembers who I used to be.
I’m sad today but keep a good face on.

Time with you is what I need.
You could call today and I would smile.
I’m afraid again, just like before.
Could you hold my hand again?

Last week, I went to dinner with friends.
I looked and they were all laughing.
With so much love, I hoped for more.
I’m taking my walk alone tomorrow.
