On the outside looking in
This is where her life begins
Wanting what she sees inside
It’s not the things, though they are nice
Not even warmth from the night
The yellow glow from the window spreads
Good feelings for the life ahead
Those who dwell inside you see
Live a life of harmony
There is no anger in those walls
No need to hide when darkness falls
As the night turns into day
Those inside begin to play
She says a prayer down deep inside
That this, their home, she may reside
Forgive her when she stops to stare
For in your window the hearts laid bare
Never has she hoped to be
A part of a home where love is free
She worries a lot.
There has been a lot in her life to worry about.
She has seen a lot.
Worry hasn’t stopped her.
She has tried to stop.
She will live.
She will smile.
Her eyes ever vigilant.
Though she sees the darkness.
She will forever stand in the light.
Compassion is the key to peace.
I wanted to touch the depths of you
You ran too deep
I wanted to soak in your comfort
You were too cold
I hoped to relax in your strength
You were too turbulent
I hoped to just be near you
You were too hard
I thought to walk away
Your pull was too strong
I thought I might soothe you
You let me have no power
That your mighty water might continue to expand
Disappointment comes from placing your expectations on someone who doesn’t know.
I walk with you
Hand in hand
You know I am your biggest fan
Remember, my love for you is pure
Yet in my heart I can’t be sure
I know you love me
Tried and true
Yet you have better things to do
To you I say take my hand
Let go for today
No worries for plans
For there may soon come a time
When you will miss
You will not find
My hand in yours
Our ties unwind
Don’t forget to see today
The things you might miss
