I

Written by: Terri Evans

I put myself upon the shelf
afraid to take  share with someone else
I have been hurt  so many times
my fear is getting deeper as the time goes by.

I put my fear upon the shelf 
giving it up might just help 
all that I am afraid of will soon fade away
as the night sky turns to day

Now that I met you 
I took my life back down
you helped me grow,I am wiser now.

Right beside you is where I stand
you are always beside me to help me 

Though I am scared to go away for the longest time
just mentioning your name keeps me calm inside
