Choice

When I was so lost
In darker times
You told me once
To close my eyes

And there I’d find
Someone to hold
You told me lies
You’ve left me alone

And I never knew I had the choice to go
When it was so very long ago
Awaiting your harsh praise
Don’t look for coming days

I hid my darkest secrets
From you so I could keep them
I’m proud to say I did that
So I could leave without my weakness

And entering the winter
My heart was cold and empty
Reflected by the weather
I was left with nothing easy

And I never knew I had the choice to go
When it was so very long ago
Awaiting your harsh praise
Don’t look for coming days

When the world
Is lonely
And love is stirring
Slowly
I’ll keep my chin up high
It’s okay to cry

Talk with myself
When I
Have no one else
By my side
I won’t be ashamed
We all play this game

And I never knew I had the choice to go
When it was so very long ago
Awaiting your harsh praise
Don’t look for coming days
