There She Stands

There she stands,
So far away,
Searching for a place, 
In which she may stay.
She's longing for a purpose,
A reason to push on.
A person, perhaps,
Who might
Help her
To right her every wrong.
She longs to be free,
As well as he,
And soar across the skies.
Like a butterfly, she wants
To take wing
And fly.
She'll try her best.
Work herself
To the bone,
And never rest.
She won't abandon hope, 
No matter the obstacle, 
Or length of the rope.
....................
But in order for this butterfly, 
To spread her wings and be free,
She must soon realize,
That she
Is me.

If I Didn't Love You...

If I didn't love you,
The sun wouldn't rise,
The sun wouldn't set,
And my life wouldn't have,
Any simple meaning yet.

If I didn't love you,
I'd always want to die,
You'd always hear me cry,
If I really didn't love you.

The skies would be clouds,
I would be full of doubts,
Rain would fall quietly,
At anyone's sight of me,
If I didn't love you.

I'd follow in your path,
Fearing of your wrath, 
If you had turned around,
And seen me,
For I know,
You don't love me...

The teardrops on my face,
Could scar the human race,
For I cry so very often...
Of course it is for you,
Not many reasons would I be,
This... Blue...

Of course only in my dreams,
Do I think of you and me,
Oh that's a lie...
For I think about you...
All the time...

So now if I didn't love you,
The sun wouldn't rise, 
The sun wouldn't set,
And my life wouldn't have,
Any simple meaning yet.
But you are here,
Embracing me in your arms.
And I know that I love you,
So this is where we are...
