Sometimes You Lose Something...
I cry these lonely tears of sorrow,
as they slide down my cheeks, onto my pillow.
My heart breaks a little more,
at each harsh word, at each angry statement.
Ill plaster a smile on later,
disguise my pain behind a laugh.
When asked if somethings wrong,
Ill lie and say nothing at all.
When truthfully, deep inside;
Im falling apart, on my knees.
Wishing things werent this way,
But it takes two to make things work.
It takes two to communicate,
it takes two to make a relationship last.
You cant forgive someone else,
If you cant forgive yourself first.
Ive cried my tears, felt my pain,
Now its time to move on again.
Sometimes you must lose something,
In order to gain something.
You must hurt, to feel joy;
You must cry, before you can laugh.
You must fall, before you can climb,
You must first see the rainclouds,
before you see the rainbow!
