Sometimes The Hardest Thing
Sometimes the hardest thing about love is the the things that you can’t say
The things that words can not express or when words just get in the way
When miles, time, careers, dreams or circumstances are like the stone that forms a cliff
But underneath it all, you still care….the love at the core of your heart you still share
Sometimes you can’t be everywhere, be everything or even just one thing
We all wear many hats, have many sides and many roads to travel
Some of those roads are smooth, others are rough as gravel
Castle walls as high as the sky, but with a breathtaking view of the sunset
You can open your heart to the world
Give away every ounce of kindness inside
And still need, still bleed, and still quietly shed tears at night
Because all you truly want is for all of the people that you love to be alright
Sometimes for all that you are gifted there’s one gift that you wish for
And for all of the needs you satisfy, you want to fix one more
If only a single hug could fix it all, as an emotional intervention would be a bit too much
Attempting to find peace in the eyes of another, instead of in the heart within yourself
Hold me, kiss me, love me
Accept me, respect me, protect me
Unconditionally, unabashedly, unapologetically
Do you really know, do you really understand the things you don’t see
Reflection in a pool
Staring deeply into the person that you see before you
How do you feel about what is mirror back to you
Sobering….leaving you so weak that you can not speak
Reflection in a pool…..asking for love.
