The Fool (standard:poetry, 216 words)
Author: kissofthehungryAdded: May 26 2005Views/Reads: 2230/0Story vote: 0.00 (0 votes)
A dedication to my husband, who showed me how to live.

Would I be the fool to let you see me cry? 

To give you the key into my world tonight? 

I try to be so strong, don't let you see into me 

Where pain and heartache live so free 

With determination and the firmest love 

You refuse to look away when my heart breaks 

You infuse me with your strength and life 

Show me that there is always a way 

When my family seeks to break me 

Destroy the happiness that I have found 

You remind me that they can't reach me 

That you're my one and only world now 

Would I be the fool to let you see me cry? 

To give you the key into my world tonight? 

You and I both know that is already too late 

I've given you my everything, my life 

Without you, I am weak, I can't breathe 

Without you, I am a dead husk of former living 

I've cried before you, my tears you kissed away 

I've given you the key, but you didn't lock me away 

To the man who makes every day worth living 

I look forward to the days we will share 

My eyes will never wander, my love will never dull 

You're the who gave me life and without you... 

It is taken away.
