She Deserves Respect


Whispers of love before the dawn
then morning comes and he's long gone.
A fragile heart in affliction,
she reminisces - days gone by
when young love camouflaged each lie.
Once, his charms were her addiction.
Whispers of love before the dawn
then morning comes and he's long gone.

Moonlit smiles caress her with hope
'til day exposes fraying rope.
A fragile heart in affliction,
Once, his charms were her addiction.
Whispers of love before the dawn
then morning comes and he's long gone.
