the world within me
Author: Ella

Chapter 63
if i have not loved

hidden from my eyes
where people dwell
the shadows of sadness
always rings a bell

hidden from my eyes
i don't know what is real
i can no longer tell the difference
of what i cannot feel

but everything i feel
would only tend to bear
another heavy burden
another burdened care

planning to take it all
and fly away one day
i cannot trim your feathers
and make you stay

plan to give it up
friendship means nothing
i cannot hold on
when nothing there is to bring

but there is something i have
something i can't hold
something i can give
but not out rightly bold

i can only give it
if you hold out your hand
gently doth receive it
i will understand

the sorrows brought me somewhere
deep within my soul
but bringing out a sadness
dirty, dark and foul

i cannot understand
the shrug that they saw
i cannot comprehend
this bitter raging war

i will not understand
why people can't give in
if this is called naive
it wouldnt be a sin

i'd rather be naive
if this for me to love
i'd rather be guillable
and work for thee above

for if i am so smart
and cannot love anymore
then surely i am nothing
nothing from before

but love is hard to find
in this floating world
yet God's love is always here
for me this little girl

i don't know what is real
but does it really matter
love is more important
all silence it can shatter
