"And though she be but little, she is fierce."- Shakespeare


So

It has come to this

Looking upward with doubtful, untrusting eyes

She wants to believe, oh she wants to

But there have been too many lies

A broken trust

A broken faith

Like a puppy that's been injured

Her eyes speak of deep wariness

Too many times

Too many lies

Too many I love you and goodbyes

Cuz honestly

A part of me

Cries out for this child

Treasure of heaven

She has not known

The reason why she was left alone

No-one to hold

And call her own

Child of his

He left behind like a byword and hiss

Surely his fists she will not miss

Daughter of grace

She did not understand

And ran so fast to clutch a hand

Now she will never trust a man

I'm reaching out

I won't let go

But I guess she does not know

That I've been broken

That I've been lost

I learned that trusting had a cost

Too many lies

Too many times

Too many I love you and goodbyes

Cuz honestly

A part of me

Knows we are just alike

In desperate means to survive

We sent trusting on a hike

Oh, little girl

Please turn to me

I hate to see you hurt

Please take my hand and wipe your tears

You I'll never desert

Til you can look with trusting eyes

Without a dredge of fear

Oh, precious sunbeam

Little lamb

I promise I'll be here
