The Thorn In My Side

Humoring her concern, I said, "Ok, I'll try,
But I knew that was not how I wanted to meet a guy,
She knew my heart belonged to her brother,
That after he died there was no other,
A piece of me died the day that he had gone,
For many years I just couldn't move on,
Years went by and then I eventually tried,
To move past the heartache but he was still the love of my life,
The guilt and burdens I had placed upon my shoulders,
That if I couldn't even help him how could I be good enough for another,
The pain in my heart as I questioned my own worth,
His sister was the only person in my life who understood this hurt,
I now know all the guilt I was feeling inside,
Were all lies holding me back in my life,
I intend to fight the good fight,
To give love even with a thorn in my side.
