The only perspective you let yourself see From those mesmerizing eyes, Is that you are utterly inadequate And may as well not be And a flurry of other black lies.
You think in the dark of the things you are not And let them consume you whole, You believe in your heart you're stupid Guess what? You forgot That I love every part of your soul.
You're stuck on depression and melancholy And I try to help you out, But there are those times of darkness When my well-worn key Is tossed aside as you take another route.
Look inward, love, at the things that are best The things deep inside that make you Who you are Each of your special qualities scream to be noticed And you need to find them For yourself Don't you dare change them Because they are wonderful Don't give up faith in yourself Because I never will Don't you dare think you are nothing Because you are my everything
.... You've shrouded yourself in darkness And you believe that's all you are. But I see your light.
Sometimes I just want to tell you words that will pierce you to the very core so you would never forget them. But then, I realize that you may take them differently than I meant them. Forgive me.
