' How Do I Reach You?
If I could put it into words -
All that my heart is feeling,
Would they help to warm your heart
Or would they send you reeling?
There are so many emotions
So many words to say,
But which ones would you savor
And which ones throw away?
I live in indecision -
Which formula is best?
Overwhelm you with my thoughts
Or give your heart a rest;
It's difficult to hold inside
This flood of raw emotion
That threatens now to drown me
Like a shipwreck on the ocean;
I would die a thousand deaths
To think you never knew
Just how ...
Oh, I have walked this land before -
Have wandered through some hidden door,
Left footprints on a distant shore
Then traveled 'round the bend;
I have appeared in many forms,
And I've encountered many storms,
Lived and died and been reborn -
My lifetimes to defend;
