Sacrifice

I know in time when I look back
on my almosts and what ifs
I'll hate my self for missing
an opportunity like this
 
But I'm afraid to hold you close
to let you come up near
for it seems I bring nothing but pain
to all that hold me dear
 
I want to tell you I can see you
every time I close my eyes
but I'm afraid this will fade as it has before
and I can't stand to see you cry
 
so I'll choose to just keep silent
and claim ignorance to what I feel
it'll kill me to just let you go
but I'm saving you by keeping this sealed
