"Only Inside" 

They touch

It hurts

But only inside

She craves it

But donít

Sheíll run and hide


She wants it

She needs it too


But giving


Cuts her through


She closes her eyes

And imagines she knows

Those warm arms around her

The craving it grows


But when eyes are open

Those arms melt away

No one would listen

And no one would stay

She prays at night

For someone to love

She opens the window

And in flies a dove

It sits on her bedside

And looks in her eyes

A look that is knowing

A look that is wise

A feeling has started

There in her heart

A warmth of new love

A wonderful start


Someone is waiting

One without love

Who prays in the night

For a gentle white dove

It flies to her bedside

To nudge her awake

To bring her the message

To ease her heartache


Someone is waiting

She needs you so much

To teach her to feel

The love in your touch


She hopes that itís someone

To help her to heal

To help her to live

To make it all real


Just wait and be patient

The time must be right

No tears in the darkness

No fear in the night


She sees her

They meet

The white dove is here


A stirring


No hurt and no fear


Her arms

Around her

At last open wide


They touch


They feel


But only inside
