The law of ice

I remember when I came to you to have it all explained
 Why you kept us both apart, in silence and in pain 
 You almost broke, you nearly spoke, you were about to say
 I don't know what, because you shook your head and walked away 
The law of ice has come between us, and there's nothing I can do 
 If you won't talk to me, then I can't talk to you 
 You've broken up my heart, just like you tore me all apart
 But I could see inside your eyes, that the words were there inside 
 You only did not know the way to start 
 I remember when you used to speak a thousand words an hour 
 And every time I came, your smile with bloom just like a flower 
 But now a deep and killing frost has come, and maybe all is lost 
 Though I still have a hope that you will want to be with me 
 When will the sunshine come again?
 When will the rivers melt in spring?
 When will you be like way back when 
 You used to dance, and clap, and sing?
 When will the ice all melt away, 
 And flow as water to the floor? 
 When will you find the words to say 
 That you don't want this anymore?

    Beautiful, moving and sad. People do change and we can never know which direction they're headed. Still, we can dream...

    wow, Isaiah, what a sad one. I really like it and I miss you. Just thought I would come back here and tell you that.
