Innermost Secrets

Suppose I tell you all my innermost secrets Lay my soul bear before you without fear, Will you respect what confidence merits Consider the trust I placed in you as dear? Knowing I have shared with you my hurt Suppose I tell you all my innermost secrets, Having come to you for needed comfort A favored friendship among all my outlets. Nothing is so sacred as sharing our regrets, As laying bear our most personal intimacies Suppose I tell you all my innermost secrets We have always conversed with such ease. Will you think me less for unveiling my soul Not seeking for how your mind interprets, But wanting our comradeship to be whole Suppose I tell you all my innermost secrets.
