Song Lyrics - It's In Your Hands Now

I softly touched the walls of your life
Sweetly assuring you of love's intention
You stood ready to give me all you have
Yet all you have is my painful hesitation

It's in your hands now
You have all I can give
It's in your hands now
Please try to forgive
My heart only thinks of you
Will it be enough for our love to live?

I drive into the gates of your love
And leave just as quickly as I arrived
Only to return full of missing love
Hoping you will feel joy instead of being denied

I don't know why I act as I do
I only know it is who I am
You are the one who always inspired me
Now you wonder if my words are a sham

It's in your hands now
You have all I can give
It's in your hands now
You might leave but please try to forgive
My heart wants to be true
Will it be enough for our love to live?

Everything I say is true
There is no other
Only you
Only you
I walk alone on my path
I guess it makes you feel lonely too

You say it's in my hands now
I'm the one that should say goodbye
I guess I'm not man enough
To watch you live while I ask myself why

It's in your hands now
You have all I can give
It's in your hands now
You might hate but please try to forgive
My heart will always be with you
Will it be enough for our love to live?

This is your original poem/song lyrics? Love lorn and waiting for the next move? Not knowing if your affection will be returned? Waiting to hear the next song.

@Dee aka Nonna - thank you so much for that.... it is honest... a guy who is laying it out and saying "this is all you will ever get from me..." But he still loves her. It's very complicated.
