Shh my soul said,

The wrong word might cause him to leave,

My heart stopped with what I said,

I waited for his response and wondered if he was going to leave,

Over and over I felt I had to watch what I say.


Tiptoed with love,

Always trying to be careful of the love that felt so fragile like glass,

I tried to hold on tightly to love,

Yet I was never happy with love that was like glass,

I was too stressed because of that love.


Eventually that lover walked away,

Eventually the glass broke,

All I could do was watch him walk away,

All I could do is cry over the love that broke,

Yet time made me thankful he walked away.
