I started alone, amidst hollow agony,
A face met my path, and he comforted me.
The face, it was yours, and you held me so close,
But your comfort did not satisfy my soul…
In complacency I agreed, your support all I’d known,
My guilt kept our bond, your love was alone.
Forever I decided, I would stand by your side,
But truth betrayed me, and left me to hide.
Like the roar of a lion, your heart then cried out,
The love in your face was replaced with a doubt.
You saw blame on your hands, and shame in your eyes,
Without my support, you wrote your goodbye…
10 years passed over my wandering heart,
The edge of my cliff, I perched to depart,
But a new voice of reason found me in the dark,
His voice carried light, hope for a new start…
I tried to love; I tried to move on,
So strong were the chains that held onto our bond.
The pain of the past, the burn of the blame,
I made the decision you already made…
