"Piece by Piece" left my heart weeping...

This song is so poignant.  So heart-wrenching. 

My heart goes out to those who never knew their father, those whose father chose to leave them, those who cannot be with their father, and to those who only long to be loved back in return...

Little girl

Little girl
who are you
why do you weep
why are you here
what do you seek

Little girl
who made it rain
where does it hurt
why are you afraid
what has changed

Hush little girl
I know you have tried
to change
to see
to be
better, wiser, kinder
but now you are opened, raw, bleeding
frayed, torn, gaping
as you clutch your heart in your hand
wide-eyed you stare at me
you seek the answers
I cannot give

Little girl
whose face do you long to see
in this darkness as you crumble and fall
A shadow of what once was
A memory of who you used to be
A recollection of who you used to know

Hush child
you'll find your way
you'll find yourself
you'll learn to love

The Path Taken

I'm starting to lose myself...
or have I lost it along the way
pieces thrown
parts set aside
fragments hidden
to spare, to compromise, to give
what you want
what you need
to bend
to understand
to accept
but it's not enough
never enough
finding faults
tempers flaring
I back down
to spare, to compromise, to give
what you want
what you need
but I'm crying
I'm breaking
too caught up
for you to see
What you can and cannot do to me.

I Choose You

Oh to have her in one of the most memorable moments of your life...

Hear what I cannot say...

I think of you in the dark
where whispers are heard like a scream

I speak your name
where silent echoes reverberate

I hear your voice
in a world that is solely my own

I taste your kiss
lips trying hard to remember

I see you smile
an unforgettable picture in my mind

Your love resides
deep in the recesses of my heart

Where every beat is a call
if only you could decipher
if only you could hear.
