just a boy

| February 25th, 2007

whisper to me please
one more time
those stories of a boy and his bear

sing to me please
just one more song
about a lonely boy on the stairs

no one wants to see you go
a shadow hangs over
my heart – a weight I cannot lift

you left so long ago
change overcame
or maybe it was just me
out growing ideas
not able to face myself
my past
to see you hurting so much
i was weak
but you were alone
i’m sorry

it always seemed to much
to bother
too painful, so hard to face
when I would come to see you
i couldn’t bring myself to leave
the look in your eyes
you didn’t want to burden anyone
with your own pain
but you didn’t want to be alone
you always invited me back
but i never called
and rarely came
i am so sorry

it’s like I shut a door
in my mind
to hide from the thoughts
of your pain
how selfish of me
you were always there for me
i could not be the same for you

by the time i’d grown
things had only gotten worse
your body and time had caught up
it didn’t even seem like you
in that chair
I am so sorry i couldn’t face that
couldn’t see you
i am weak
and i’m sorry

whisper to me please
one more time
those stories of a boy and his bear

sing to me please
just one more song
about a lonely boy on the stairs

please leave a reply
