I tried to run away from the pain of lost love.
Thought that I could wrap it up in the job
and toss it away.
But running away doesn't work,
pain always comes back,
no matter how far I run.
To face up to pain,
embrace it, become one with it,
make it a part of me.
Live with it and pain goes away with time.
If I had the choice again.
To say "I love you" or to hide my feelings and walk away.
I know I will always choose the first.
You have shown me how to live,
to avoid feeling dead like before.
I can't tell you how much that means.
Thank you for letting me feel and live.
Allowing me to believe in love.
