Shy Away

by Torn   May 19, 2006

As I shy my eyes away from hers,
There's too much pain I can see.
I'm too scared to confront it,
Yes I know it's selfish of me,

But the truth is I've let people down,
When they needed me the most.
I don't know how, I don't know why,
But definitely cannot boast.

Standing here in front of me,
Is a girl stronger than all.
She keeps quiet and is discreet,
And always there when I fall.

This friend of mine she saved me,
It's not a stretch of truth.
She gave me hope and friendship,
And here I stand as proof.

So it hurts me to see the pain,
That is visible in her eyes.
Even with her wide grin,
I feel like I can see past the lies.

I want her to know where she stands,
How she means the world to me.
How every day I need her there,
To keep away this misery.

I want her to see what I see,
A gorgeous girl with so much to give.
Inside a trapped, thinning body,
That this disease wont let her forgive.

Please know I'm here for you,
Always, through thick and thin.
I will do whatever I can,
And that I'm sorry for the way I've been.

I love you so much Boris.
You make me smile=)
