The shadows behind her wall
hold darkness for her disguise.
She enters the addictive shadows
and closes her beautiful eyes.
I alone am standing there
quietly behind her wall.
She stumbles in the darkness
my heart flutters and breaks her fall.
In timeless hope, she’s’ been there
her loneliness is hard to take.
She wants someone to be with her
to softly ease the ache.
Her wall allows her peace and quiet.
Her wall is her best friend.
She stays behind it looking out
allowing no one to get in.
She built the wall for her alone.
Her mind protects its space.
She allows no one with her there.
It is her private place.
Now a stranger wanders within
and she struggles to depart.
He puts his arms around her.
She moves to protect her heart.
The darkness hides his face.
The shadows hide his smile,
but his kindness warms her silent soul.
It makes lingering there worthwhile.
Now there’s no need behind her wall
for hate or fear or pain.
Those who have he power to hurt,
she will never hold close again.
He whispers to her so softly.
She moves closer, just to hear.
He puts his arms around her
and speaks these words so clear.
I feel your beauty …lonely girl.
Your angelic essence so near.
The world’s a better place
because you are here.
I will always love you
