Oceans

October 23, 2015

 

OCEANS

 

Between my heart and yours
Lie oceans wide and deep
We aren't brave enough to sail across the swell

 

Between my heart and yours
Lie soaring mountain peaks
We aren't brave enough to rise above them all

 

Even when I tried to help you see
You became mad enough to bring our hearts to heel
I sent a ship to ferry you
But you were too stuck in what you knew to believe it's true

 

Between my truth and yours
Lie frozen icy shores
We aren't brave enough to feel the space between

 

Between my truth and yours
Lies an angry ocean's roar
We aren't brave enough to speak above the din

 

Even when I tried to help you see
You became blind to the hand that reached out for you
And I sent a ship to ferry you
But you were too stuck in what you knew to believe it's true

 

I've given all I can
And you try hard not to understand
And I won't play a pawn in the game at hand

 

I can't place my trust in you
For you refuse to rewrite what you think is true
And I no longer fit into the world you drew

 

Because even when I tried to help you see
You became mad enough to bring our hearts to heel
And when I sent a ship for ferry you
You were too stuck in what you knew to believe...
to believe that it could be true for you too
