A moment a sliver a chance to go back
If only I could I know right where to be exact.
I'd go to the moment to the time in my past
Where effort was put but love didn't last
I take a deep breath and I'd smile sweetly
And wrap a few woes of my future up neatly
I'd realize without effort and right on the spot.
That love takes work but it's all that we got.
I'd walk away from the pain doubt and confusion
I'm sorry if I am just an intrusion
I thought that with work that love could dwell in me.
Boy was I wrong this you will see.
I sacrificed and adjusted time and ttime again
Laid my heart out left it wide open
I pored forth all that I had stored inside
But each time it was never enough love left my side.
Life turned me cold for a short time
Took away my words left no rhyme
Gradually healing slow and steady
Life keeps going even when we aren't ready
S0ometimes effort isn't quite enough
Sometimes his hide is so tough
Breaking through seems dam near impossible
The outcome inevitable
Once I met someone whom I will love for all time
Although each day the sun sets and still he is not mine
Each morning I awaken and breathe once again
And steadily let the day begin
