~ Hidden Tears ~

Do they see the tears that donít fall?

Ones buried deep.

Do they know how they hurt me?

Giving advice, not knowing.

Do they see me struggle?

Each and every step.

Do they feel my pain?

Never without.

Do they call me to say hi?

The phone never rings.

Do they write words of encouragements?

The mailbox stays empty.

Do they listen to what they say?

Not what I need to hear.

Do they love me for me?

They donít even know me.

Do I love them regardless?

In spite of themselves.

Do I forgive them?

Always and forever.

Does my heart still hurt?

Tears they wonít see ~
