Your light

Your light

From a distance

I see you clearly

Earnest and gentle

I stumble in your wake

Every moment is precious

To have your eyes on me

To be in your view

Can’t compare to all the darkness

I will endure

For in you I see it all

But out of reach

And never to hold

Your darkness

Your darkness

Your presence shines a shadow 

Across every surface

It fades away beauty

Makes the day bittersweet

In your absence the light shines through

But it can’t be ignored

Through the darkness 

The light of day is brighter

I cherish the moments to come

I settle into the motion

Counting the minutes more present

Appreciating the time to come

In my weakness

In my weakness

In my weakness

Normally I don’t feel this way

A lie you should know already

To say I am not dramatic

To say I am not romantic

Everyday of the year

Is what I pretend

So perhaps I should be honest

For once, twice a day

There has so much I wanted to say

Can’t help the way I feel

But I can control it

I can walk away from it

To save a piece of me from heartache

More heartache to be clear

No matter how I try

He just doesn’t feel the same

There is nothing more that I can say

There is nothing more I can do

Crossing more lines

Will bring me no further
