Verbal Graffiti

Dedicated to
To the man whose ring I wear so proudly

I can't remember how to be; this moment had stolen my every breath.

It took all I had to stand up and tell you how I feel,

And your silent answer ripped out my heart.

I wish I could say I am as strong as you appear to be

But my strength left me when I opened myself to you

So hold me in your arms

Even if it means nothing when you hold me close

Hold me while I cry for who I loved

Hold me while I let you go

The day I fell for you

I knew I would never be the same

You changed what I thought I wanted my life to be

I could stand and walk away

But not without leaving behind what I need

So hold me in your arms

Even if it means nothing when you hold me close

Hold me while I cry for who I loved

Hold me while I let you go

I know my words only make sense to me

I know that your silence is only meant for you

It's the knowing what I already knew that kills me

And how much my heart is breaking

As I stand so close and you are still so far away

I'll pretend that your hearts steady beat doesn't hurt

As mine fights to stay in my aching chest

I'll pretend that your eyes aren't avoiding mine

As mine face the ground as I pray

For the strength to just walk away

So hold me one last time in your arms

Even if it means nothing when you hold me close

Hold me while I cry for who I lost

Hold me while my heart lets you go
