• Love


    There were so many times I smile at you,
    but i smiled deep inside.
    Afraid to reveal to much,
    all that i had to hide.

    The past that had been stripped away
    by a tide that washed me dry.
    And a past so dark and hesitant,
    never knowing when to cry.

    Under all the make-believe,
    my smile is all I hide.
    All the truth i keep from you
    bottled deep inside.

    I'm sorry that I've lied to you,
    I'm sorry that I'm weak,
    I'm sorry that I care for you,
    but with words I can't speak.

    I'm ready to start over,
    and have you as my friend.
    And start over fresh and new
    so I can open up to you again.

    Just give me some time to trust you
    and try to comprehend,
    that I am tired of hiding from you
    but a heart takes time to mend.
