The chill sets in whenever I approach,
It's been that way since she lost faith in me.
However much I try there's still reproach.
This cannot be the way it's meant to be.
Forgiveness now would be a kindly act
For what our love has been to her and me,
Because my faith in her remains intact
And she must see how great our love would be.
It all began with something that was done
That cut her heart and caused her doubt in me.
It was a joke that started all for fun,
But pain and hurt creates mistrust to be.
I always knew that words could ruin joy,
And tear apart my world, and bury me,
And still I thought I'd jest, perhaps annoy,
Not counting out how much the cost could be.
Delighting in her laughter never more
Would be the greatest loss to such as me
Who longs for all the happiness before,
And all the pleasures that had come to be.
Oh, who is kidding whom, it is the end.
She's never going to let the love back in.
She's not the type to waver or to bend
I'm just a cypher in her life again.
Regrets, remorse, all faith in life is lost,
The sky is dark and storm clouds force me in.
I feel the tears, will ever count the cost,
And bitterness may overwhelm again.
But this is self-indulgence, not a life.
I cannot leave light out and let gloom in.
My fate is in my hands, I need no strife.
I want the sun to warm my face again.
No woman, not a one, can rule my bliss,
Affording me such pleasures they let in.
And giving me elation from a kiss
That may or may not ever come again.
My blessings go with her this star-crossed day
As she goes on with life that I'm not in.
Good hopes and dreams like flowers on her way,
This is my wish for her...and love again.
