Outsider… - By Lanny Wafer


Like an outsider looking in
Staring in your eyes from above
Your beautiful heart felt grin
I see over your left shoulder
I'll never tell, anything about us
A young man grows older
Lost all but the pictures
In my mind me and you
I don’t lie my heart is true
Don’t leave me yet
I need to feel this hurt inside
Lightning across the sky
Thunder rolls forward… I try
Head follows, heart stays
Still asking how, why
Please I want something To hold on to
More than a faded dream
Grasping for us, losing hope
While around me disappears
Like water down a drain
You were everything
Taken by the wind
To see you again
Makes the fall harder
Your beauty etched in my mind
Can I try to get where I was?
Before your angelic presence
Tore my heart out over and over
I thought angels healed and protected
I thought God remembered my cry
Two steps forward
A thousand back
Can I return to yesterday?
No let me love you
Feel my presence surround you
Throughout your day
