~ Let Me Lean On You ~

Keep your eyes upon me,
Keep me in your sight.
Help me down the crooked road,
Lead me to the light.
The road I'm on is dark,
I'm not sure I know the way.
But with your beside me,
I know I will not stray.
Protect me from the world I'm in,
I'm certain we'll make it through.
Let me hold your hand,
Let me lean on you.

~ Terrified Tears ~

The face of an angel is all that I hear,
One beautiful freckle equal one terrified tear.
Not ready to leave but has to go,
Wants to bo back but God says no.
Leaving your life is a scary thought,
I guess it's something that can't be fought.
A mother, a father, a sister, and friend,
A meaningful life that suddenly ends.
An angle is what she was meant to be,
Now just think of all she can see.
Looking over her family night and day,
Saying I love you in her own special way.
In the night we sleep, in the day we cry,
She watches us all from her star in the sky.

~ Please Look A Little Deeper ~

Please look a little deeper, way down deep inside,
And although you may not see it,
I have a lot to hide.
Behind my clothers the secrets lie,
Behind my smile, I softly cry.
Please look a little deeper, and maybe you will see,
The lonely little girl that lives inside of me.
Please listen carfully to her,
She'll show that she's in secure.
Please try to be a friend to her and show her that you care.
Please just get to know her and maybe you will see
That if you just look deep enough,
You'll find the real me.

~ Thoughts ~

These thoughts in my head
Are so hard to explain.
Sometimes I wish I was dead,
but that would be insane.
These thoughts in my head are so confusing,
sometimes I think they are so abusing.
These thoughts in my head,
I have every day.
These thoughts in my head just won't go away.
Somebody, somebody, help me please.
These thoughts in my head won't let me be.

~ My One And Only ~

We started off as friends
Between us there's no lies.
We finally tied loose ends,
no need to compromise.
Your the one I wanted to hold,
Your all I waited for.
You treat me as if I was gold,
I couldn't ask for more.
I feel so content just lying here,
with you by my side.
I feel we are a loving pair,
you are my joy and pride.
With your honest tender touch,
each day my feelings grow.
I care for you so very much,
I'll never let you go.

~ To Be With You ~

Written with a pen sealed with a kiss
If you love me please answer me this.
Do you love me or do you not,
you told me once but I forgot.
So tell me now and tell me true,
so I can tell I love you too.
For all the boys I ever met,
your the one I won't forget.
So if I die before you do,
I'll go to heaven and wait for you.
So if your not there by judgement day,
I know you went the other way.
I'll give the angel back my wings,
and risk the loss of everything.
Just to prove my love is true,
I'll go to Hell just to be with you.
