If only

No one knows
How far we go
To simply keep ourselves
Afloat

No one hears
Our silent tears
As we drop them
Through the years

No one sees
Our empty eyes
Using smiles
As an infallible disguise

If only
We'd let them know
How hard it is
How far to go

If only
We'd let them hear
The secret drop
Of another tear

If only
We'd let them see
Our hollowed eyes
Hidden so cleverly

Maybe we'd
Not be so lost
Giving up
At such a high cost

Maybe we'd
See that there's hope
When there's a will
There's a way to cope
