Unveil My Heart
Not a sound but the gentle beat of my heart,
fills this room as I lay here in the dark.
Alone but still the other side of my bed I trace,
yearning to be greeted by a smiling face.
But all my fingertips find is a pillow which is soft,
still I yearn for someone to rub my back for all the times I've coughed.
It's been so long since I felt that sweet caress,
or my heart was touched by a gentle tenderness.
Guess I'm scared to give my heart away,
not sure when but maybe one day?
I'll give my heart without a shred of fear,
as soon as I know that the coast is clear.
I'll open up showing her all the love I hold inside,
that for so long now I've tried to hide.
To no avail as my emotions are so transparent,
the fact that I miss being loved also apparent.
Back to reality I scan these four walls,
willing to believe that one day love to me calls.
That's all I want to be loved and it to be true,
to erase from my life the phrase no can do.
Wrapping myself up in my own warm embrace,
I taste the bittersweet tear that runs down my face.
Myself I feel slowly begin to fall apart,
so I make a pact from now on to UNVEIL MY HEART!!
