New Way

They took her for granted

So I can’t afford to do that 

I cherish every moment

Because I know we can’t get time back

They didn’t tell her that they loved her

So I do it twice as much

The scars they left behind

I kiss softly

Forcing them to fade away

She lost her smile

And I’m helping her find it

It’s about time she knew

Just how beautiful she is


She gives me the freedom I need

To be me

She accepts what I am with love

She helps free the real me

The one I hide from 

Judging eyes 

The person I keep

Locked inside 

I never really knew

What it meant to be happy 

But now…

I can laugh and smile
