I wish that I could comfort you
Take you in my arms
And nurture you.
They say that I am broken now
They say that my eyes only
The laugh lines have faded out
And all my smiles have turned to
I say, what do they know?
Lucky them if our pain they
Could not know.
My words no longer flow with ease
I may no longer glow with girlish glee,
But I'm not a shrunken bitter mess
I'd still hold you tight if your heart
You think your tears fall to waist,
No one appreciates the precious
toll they take,
but sweetheart that's your mistake
I'd hold each drop of your soul you
ever let escape.
You aren't some empty shell,
I am all too familiar with that hell,
You have feelings you can't describe
You just keep shoving them deep
We aren't wells, you and I.
We are people and we were
meant to let people in,
And to share what we hate
And keep inside.
There is no longer any darkness
I haven't seen,
No amount of love i haven't need.
I have no right to make a demand
And if you walk away, I understand.
But I'm standing here just the same,
Wanting you to know,
Before you think you're at the end
I'm right here offering to be your friend.
