To the friend who doesn't know yet what her friendship did for me.

SUNLIT HEART

I was in the shadows
Lies reflect in the windows

Everyone thought I was alright
I pretended and cried in the night

And then one day
You turned me another way

You pulled me out of my hole
Made me feel life was gold

And I can feel the start
You opened up my heart

I know you'll be the one
To sit with in the sun

When I talk you don't stare
We're a perfect pair

We can watch the water glimmer
Sleep as the light goes dimmer

Maybe it won't last
But I don't let go of the past

Dressed with shining things
Or hair ruffled by swings

No promises
But two necklaces

I thought I was alone
And I was wrong

Bound by sunlight

I have my friend
