Could I Love You?

You may see smiles

But there are tears

Sometimes I think

I've lived well beyond my years

And it's only truth to say

That I've been happy

But if I'm alone

You won't catch me laughing


I've hidden well

From those I love

With truth still to tell

I'm overdone

I want so much

Just to tell you

Could you be my crutch?

Could I love you?


I've tried to die

Many times my love

I'm lost in whys

And snared in what's

What's really the matter?

And why does it matter at all

Would you catch me if I fall?

If I get any sadder


I've hidden well

From those I love

With truth still to tell

I'm overdone

I want so much

Just to tell you

Could you be my crutch?

Could I love you?


What's really wrong

Is what's in the past

My mother and Father

And always ending last

I couldn't control it

The way I felt

They never could know

The way I dealt


I have scars to show the way I feel

I have enough to know this pain is real

Can you help me out can I crawl above?

I've had my doubt on if I'll live to 21


I've hidden well

From those I love

With truth still to tell

I'm overdone

I want so much

Just to tell you

Could you be my crutch?

Could I love you?
