Your Hello

what is with your “hello,” dear?
that I so long desired to hear

a kind of hello, i used to adore
whenever you’re up and close by the door

the hello that awakened my soul
fulfilled my true heart’s impulse

a kind of hello, i missed and longed for
regardless of the millions i heard over

the hello that soothed my heart
numbed my thoughts, made me forget

a kind of hello, i used to admire and desire
for it echoed your love and passion, I swear

what is with your “hello,” dear?
’twas you saying, I love you, I’m sure
