I thought of you with love today,
But I suppose that's nothing new
Lingering thoughts of yesterday,
I guess there's anger, hatred too
I think of you in silence,
To afraid to speak your name
Nothing left but memories,
A faded picture and broken frame
I'll try to hold you close
And keep the tears at bay
Only with the hopeless dusk
Will the mask of courage fade away.
I cry for you and wonder
How many years you'd had to hide,
And if it was this same sorrow
That brought temptations of death and suicide
