You open me up wide,
In the name of love and friendship
And yet you let them use me.
Use me up dry.
You do not take a stand for me.
You give all of me there is to give
And when they toss pennies at you
You know you should be angry
But you smile
You let them feel it's ok
You do not stand for me
You allow them to devalue me
They give you gifts
You know that thing that you do
When oh when will you love me?
Because when you do....
You will flow like a river
You will be as transparent as your child's heart
There will be no darkness in yours
When you love me you will stand for me
Your head held high
They will come from far and wide
To witness my greatness
Offer me silver and gold
Yes, my weight in gold
But until you do
Pittances and Pain will be our Portion
Your dark and justified heart will continue to close
Just Love me.
I am waiting.
