Sometimes you feel so alone.
You look around all day long
Searching for friends that don't seem to know
The many ways they do you wrong.
But that does not mean you can run away
To hide away from the things you fear.
It may not always come easy
And I can guarantee you will shed some tears.
It does not seem logical though
To make a wall in such a tender place,
To create a barrier to protect yourself,
To ruin the view of such a pretty face.
I know how hard it can be to move on,
How the fear can subside your heart's feelings.
But you know it can happen sometimes
For you to trust without only pain following.
There are many things I could say to try and convince you
But I'd rather say things I know to be true.
That though we may not always be together
I will always be there for you.
And if you learn to truly open up to me,
Not only with your hand but with your heart,
Maybe we could be something you never thought.
And make a memory or two to start.
