"Only Inside" 

They touch

It hurts

But only inside


She craves it

But donít

Sheíll run and hide

Comfort

She wants it

She needs it too

 

But giving

Receiving

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

Inside

No hurt and no fear

 

Her arms

Around her

At last open wide

 

They touch

 

They feel

 

But only inside
