For Robert
by   Scarlet

Could my eyes ever see
Behind the cold green of yours
Must I claw through the mask you wear

Could my lips ever probe
Beneath your trembling smile
Would I find all your pain hidden there

Could my hands ever reach
Beyond your rigid composure
Can I touch what you've let none see

Could my love for you
My respect for your longing
Release what you've never set free

For your pain is mine
All your sufferring and sorrow
Are knives that cut me in two

Can I hold you so close
Can I be there to help
Can my heart tell you how...
                   I love you
