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.
