when hearts cry.

[a song i wrote 10 years ago]

she wept
as she drove along today
and she felt so alone in a new place
finally safe
but doesn’t feel much like it

she was
so very brave
she walked away
from those who were hurting her
more than she even knew

but now
she sits alone
in a new place
that she calls her home
but nothing feels quite like home right now

and she says
i just
want somebody
to love me

december
rolls around
and snow falls to the ground
and she hears
songs of love and cheer and family near

but love
feels so far away
and if you listen
you’ll hear her say

i just
want somebody
to love me

she falls
down on her knees today
because she needs a way
to make it through this
she doesn’t want to break

bruises
on her arms have gone away
but the ones on her heart
feel like they’re there to stay
and she’s crying out

oh God
i don’t want to be alone
please hold me

she falls
down on her knees
and she feels
her heart’s pain
ease
