THE HERO. Simple Rhyme
There's something on my mind today
Something that I need to say
As nothing helps me understand
So I reach out to hold your hand
The emptiness I'm left with now
We lost each other, tell me how?
I hoped we'd walk a peaceful road
With strength to bear the heavy load
Of those who said we'd never be
The ones we knew who couldn't see,
That you were made to be my dream
And lean on me so it would seem....
Your Hero I must surely be.
The weeks and months and years passed by
With every heartbeat I knew why
We shared it all, the good the bad
Never straying. Never sad.
We knew no one would help us out
Despite the pleas we'd often shout.
Our walk was lonely cold and long
It mattered not though right or wrong
What happened to the hope we had?
Were we to see our love turn bad?
I thought I was your Hero.
The ups and downs were everyday
On bended knee I begged you, stay
Your eyes were sad and filled with tears
replacing laughter through the years
What happened Babe? Who broke your heart?
Can I help? Where can I start?
I want to be your Hero
We struggled on, though little spark
Was all of it a simple lark?
It pains me when I see you smile
With others as I grieve the while.
For everything I give to you
And all the things I try to do
Is someone else your Hero?
I feel a cloud descending now
The darkness falls, I wonder how
You've taken different steps than I
As though you soar throughout the sky
My solitude engulfs me dear
Because I do not feel you near
It's true, it's clear...I break in two
Your Hero is no one but you.
