I don’t think you understood
Half of what was told to you.
I know I’m much too old for you
to show you something that is new.
I guess I’d have a couple words
But when I say them are they heard?
Because sometimes you act like what we have
Has hastily halted to what we had.
I know that you don’t understand
The way that life brought me the light;
Through fright, sheer pain, and disbelief,
I got pulled through the dark night.
And in the day these things remain.
I’m not somehow immune to pain.
Just because I brace when it comes
Instead of turning my back just to run
I tried to tell you that there are more,
I’ve met a few of us so far,
But all you see is me it’s true
Because you know that I love you.
