I see your secret glances at the photos on the wall,
I see you look away like it doesn’t bother you at all.
I see your hidden sorrow; I know it all to well,
I see your walls rising to enclose what you will never tell.
I see your glowing smile every now and then,
I see more of your watery eyes filled with thoughts of what could have been.
I see you pull away and separate from all that might be real,
I see your pain and heartache that you believe will never heal.
