Sad song with many interpretations, and applications.

You're worthy of love

I see the scars, you're hiding deep within
they're not visible, upon your skin
you don't even know, how you could begin
to feel worthy of love...

You've been floating away, in time and space
your pain is written, all over your face
your dignity left you, without a trace
and you don't feel worthy of love

Bridge 1
I've seen so many people, just like you
they never seem to make a fuss
the only colors you know, are black and blue
and now it's hard for you to trust

The only friends you had, have long since died
you couldn't save them all, even if you tried
now you bottle up all, your feelings inside
you don't feel worthy of love

Bridge 2
I know to you living, is not worthwhile
but I can prove that you're wrong
I know it hurts to even try to smile
cause you forgot where you belong

Some may say, that you're a little high strung
you've shed too many tears, for someone so young
don't you know that you're life has just begun
and that you're worthy of love...

oh yes you're worthy of love
you are so worthy of love

You've forgotten that, you too have worth
you're the only you, on this planet earth
just ask the loving ones, who caused your birth
they'll say...you're worthy of love
indeed you're worthy of love

welcome home my dear!
you are so worthy of love!

I don't know why I could relate to this, John, but this lyric touched my heart, a 7:) love can cover any fault, and all human beings are worthy of love, especially God's love:)

You're so right Jo, that's the reason I wrote this so that everyone can know they are worthy of His love. Thanks for the nice comment!

Thanks for the visit Charlotte, yes health problems are a day to day struggle, but friends and family do help, poetry also for sure.

I didn't get the same melancholy feel that a few others took away from this wonderful song. To me it was full of warm reassurance. It felt like a big bear hug. Maybe I missed the boat with my interpretation, but I'm pretty sure poetic license extends to the reader too :)

You're right Phillip, that's why I changed my note, because every poem has different meanings to different people, thanks a lot for the visit hope things are going better for you!

A sentimental, compassionate poem, trying to acquaint us with, and strengthen our belief, in love's magic. Emile.
