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
