Sometimes

---

Sometimes…

I remember your smile,
Your warm embrace.
Even now
I still lose face

Sometimes…

I think of your strong arms
That would hold me through the night
I know I embarrassed you with the tears,
But you still held me--you felt it was right

Sometimes…

I remember your laughter,
So light and carefree,
We were always laughing about something,
Even when it was something others couldn't see

Sometimes…

I remember your pain,
Your eyes always bore a wounded look,
You opened up to me sometimes.
To help you, I'd do whatever it took

Sometimes…

I remember your tears
When they came they fell like rain
It hurt to see you hurt, so slowly
Your pain became my own disdain

Sometimes…

I cry when I remember
How I tried to help you so much,
Tried to be there for you
But you always shrank away from my touch

Sometimes…

I regret doing what I did
It hurt so much, but I knew it was only fair
You needed help, someone more than me
So… I told you that I no longer care

Sometimes…

I feel guilty for lying
To you that way
But I could no longer help you,
I could no longer stay.

Sometimes…

I hurt because of my choice,
I made it to help you
Even though you didn't understand
There was nothing else I could do.

Sometimes…

Choices are hard to make,
Especially choices of right and wrong
But, I know it's for the best, you'll see
Someday you'll know I was right along

I was right I know,
It hurts… but…

Sometimes…

When you truly care,
When you want someone to know,
That you love them…

Sometimes…

You have to let them go
