Reflection


If only you
Could really understand
What I have went through
But you will never know it
Each day
That passes by
You couldn't see
The agony in my eyes
Head behind the smile
I worn to disguise
What I felt inside

Why couldn't you love me?
Like how i've always dreamed
Reflections of your love have broken me
you just didn't care, didn't care enough
for me...

And i'm now
At the point where I
Could open my eyes
And see it for what it was
don't know how
Guess I had an epiphany
No longer questioning why
Cause the answer lie inside

There's a heart that discovered the moment of truth
That have help find a place of solace
