Tiger Lily


Tiger Lily

March 2009

You don’t know the way I’ve broken for you,

You don’t know what this has done to me,

This love,

This longing,

This belonging,

To you,

For so long.

You don’t know how much I love,

How much I can,

What I’m capable of,

What I give,

What I am,

How I hope,

What I dream,

You don’t know how I pray for salvation,

From the things I know,

And how I wish,

I could make it right for you,

Without it being wrong for me,

Or someone,


You don’t know

How I love you still,

In ways there are no words for,

In ways you never heard before,

And wouldn’t understand,

Wendy to your Peter Pan,

What will I do?

What would you want for me?

Sleep easy.

Sleep easy,

I’ll tell you a story…
