Escape at Last
To learn to love, you must first learn to cry
Offer your heart before love says goodbye
Smile looking at her; let her see your eyes.
Our bodies and minds are conditioned by life
Show your emotions don't be stoic in strife
Realise now lies are deadlier than a knife.
For too long now, my heart has been asleep
But slowly through joy, I'm learning to weep
Like that of a soul taking a great upwards leap.
Now there are tears as my heart opens again
Not tears or sobs of a heart wrenched in pain
And having achieved love desires to remain.
At last it has become the time for you to cry
As anger and frustration from inside you die
Here beside you I wipe the tear from your eye.
I have looked in your eyes and I see your tears
You have held it inside you for all these years
I'll hold you and kiss you, removing your fears.
