A secret loneliness settles around me
I'm doing my best not to fall
We love but cannot be.
The stars say we have to leave each other,
one in the cold and one happy forever.
A struggle that can't be taken
lightly one that won't go away.
My secret happiness is fading away
as I lie in the shadows unnoticed.
My pain won't leave me until I give up,
but I try fighting on.
I collapse one last time while,
I smile at a love once known until the day
it was taken. A lost love that will
forever be in my heart a cherished memory
even after I'm long gone.
As I slowly fade into shadows I see a
light it gives me an option.
"Live with the pain or come and forever
be at peace."
I choose the pain.
