Sometimes all seems broken
An unbridgeable void to you
Distant words no longer clear
The melancholy echo of a loving time

Sometimes I brave a lonely smile
Not sharing how I feel
Why should others want to know
The emptiness inside me

Sometimes it’s easier to carry
Another sorrow than my own
To be the shield for other pain
A guardian ‘gainst their fears

Sometimes I think I am beloved
And cannot reason why
Why would you love a lone poor soul
Or hold me when I cry

Sometimes I ache to see your face
And long to have you near
To hear your voice read me to life
And banish my despair
