I cry for the lost and the lonely
I cry for the stolen years
My soul cries inside in silence
when I can't cry out loud or with tears
I can't take back what was taken
nor erase, or return to relive it
I can't fix, understand or mistake it
or ever completely forgive it.
What was once broken remains broken
what was feared still makes me afraid
Things unsaid remain unspoken
painful scars of a trust now betrayed.
No choice but time-limited choices
of the options left after despair
no choice but to be a survivor
instead of a victim of theirs.
Still, the music of Life keeps on playing
and the love fight hard to survive
as the day-steps clear the depression
I can thank God that I'm still alive.
