You called it 'boyhood wanderlust'
and said it's passed away;
But I could tell you honestly,
I'll love her all my days.
It's not of 'being married',
nor sex, nor running afar;
It's way down deep inside of me;
It's as distant as the furthest star.
My love for her will never die;
The words I feel are true,
But knowing this and what I have,
I'd not stop and run from you.
And still you know the pain exists;
There's an emptiness inside me;
And given the chance for truth or deceit,
I had to say "Let it be".
I'm not here at all to hurt you,
as I know some words could do;
There's a place in my heart, my mind and soul
that shares a love with you.
And now I hide my feelings,
so deep within my being;
I mask my heart and steel my eyes
to try to keep you from seeing...
My innermost thoughts of love on the wind;
A love so ingrained, pure and true;
All covered and hidden so far within,
with a love that I have for you.
