1998 - 2010

She can't see past his chocolate eyes

Or hear distrust in his gentle voice.

She knows what lies in his troubled life,

But she won't give up!

No! Never give in.

She's seen the bones on his closet floor,

Sweetly scattered amongst his socks and shoes.

His lies, she's heard a million ties,

But she won't believe.

No! He won't confess!

Her company is the luxury of his soul

When no one answers his tired call.

Though she knows the game (and it hurts to play),

She won't give up!

No! Never give in.
