Young lovers entwined on the grass
On a beautiful hot summer's day;
Weary new parents breaking into a smile
As they watch their kids giggle and play.
Every day i wake up.
Every day i live my life.
Every day i see you,
But your heart pulsates with a beat true to someone else.
Was i wrong to think you cared about me?
Am i right to think that you don't?
All i wanted was to gain your love -
Is it obvious that i won't?
What is love?
An abstract word thrown recklessly about,
in this modern age of chaos.
Uttered between emotionally charged individuals,
Trudging through a crystal encrusted blanket of cotton snow,
A solitary light casts a prism of sparkles;
Surrounding, consuming, but i remain dark and dull,
I look back and see my footprints.
One day in front of a TV show,
My young child turned to me,
And asked with innocence in his face and heart
'Do you believe in God, Mommy? '
Every time you glance my way
My heart is moved to tears;
Praying that you'll embrace a love
That conquers all of my fears.
What becomes of the broken hearted?
Do the wounds ever truly heal?
Or will they simply be masked over
With another laugh, another smile?
I stand in the arch of a doorway
Looking into a dimly lit room;
I smile as i see my beautiful friend,
Just watching TV in the gloom.
