Hidden Tears

Hidden Tears...

I gave you my life
Set aside my pride
Gave you all I had
Crying tears inside
Knowing the wrong doing

Never knew,(were)
Never knew, (how)
All I could say,
Is why

I respected you
I admired you
I loved you

Why all the lies
Why did you break the glass
Spill water all over
Start bomb fires
Causing my tears

I was number one
As you say
You lost me
Tor me apart
Took my blood
Needle and thread melted
Can't put me in one

For tigers and bears
I have no fear
I cooked you a meal
Told you to stay still

Relax and enjoy your day
Even let you go your way
I showed my life
Wanting a kiss
Wanting a touch
Wanting love
I wanted it from you

You took it, somewhere else
Kissing her
Touching her
Made love to her

Then gave me her touch
Played your games
In so many years
Yet I forgave
Not once

I let you stay
I respected you
Loved you
Only you

My body yours
My mind yours
My love yours

You took your advantage and threw 
it away
Causing doctor and nurses to heal 
my bruises
For your lies and mistakes

Now listen to this
Stay far, far away
I don't want you to stay
Don't tell me sorry
Leave songs on my phone
Send flowers to my home
Understand your pride
But, don't come my way
I'm not here to stay
You wasted enough of my time

    You got it girl. Some men don't deserve a good woman. Sometimes a lot of us women give too much and get very little in return. Thanks for sharing. Smile - JESUS loves you. Lucy
