She is just out of reach 

So i must try to breach

The defences she's built through the years 

She's so obviously scarred 

Never lowers her guard 

Wears a smile to hide heartbreak and tears 

She should shake it all free 

How I wish she could see

A door opens for each that slams shut

Her mistrust runs so deep 

She can't dream without sleep 

Finds her feelings through flesh with a cut

She has told me some guy 

Took the glint from her eye

As he altered the beat of her heart 

She had given her all 

She still waits for his call 

Can't accept that they've grown apart 

I'll step back let her deal 

Hope her wounds quickly heal 

Be on hand should her call come my way

Such a beautiful sight

Blinded by her own light 

Still in mourning though finding her way

      Peto this is just beautiful, you could have written this for me in the 90's you know us women we always almost see the light in the end. Ham on the eyes in the end the ham falls off in other words love is blind depends on each of us when that ham falls ❤️ I absolutely love this ❤️ you show true empathy and compassion

        You’ve been on fire. I admire how proliferate you are. I go in stages but have these uninspired intervals that you found a way to burst through. Salute my friend. Much admiration for the way you blast. You’re a high level talent.

        • peto

          You are a high level person
          Cant thank you enough for such encouraging support Bobby

            Beautifully written, peto, and applicable to so many who walked that path. It takes enormous strength to not let the past screw up the present and cloud the future. But fortunately it is not impossible.
