Sometimes we repeat
the things we say.
To give extra emphasis
to the meaning we want to convey.
I say 'you know'
in hope that you do.
You know its hard
to communicate and come through.
Don't want any meaning
to get lost in the mix.
'You know' helps bridge the gap
its an easy fix.
We all share like experiences.
In life this is true.
You know I'll understand
when talking to you...you know.
