I the lonely author of
The words I strive to speak
Hope they might find your ear
And deliver thoughts I think

I hear a voice inside my mind
That begs me not to speak a line
Says you’ll never empathize
But you get me every time

It’s hard to know what best to say
When words won’t hardly do
My stumbling speech and empty phrasing
All makes sense to you
Do you know that when I say I love you
My words are all too true
Aloud they feel awfully empty
But you hear them through and through

A picture I have in my mind
I want for you to see
A canvas dealing with deepest feeling
Just for you and me

Not often do I meet a soul
Who hears and understands
Who can see the well that holds my tears
Who will listen to my plans


When I feel the world has lost its meaning
And I can’t believe a thing I know is true
You softly wake me up out of my dreaming
And you ease my heavy heart with gentle words that soothe my mind and calm my soul
