I could have loved you

Standard

I could have loved you,

I could have saved you,

But you wouldn’t let me in,

You were still hurting,

From the pain inflicted by somebody else

And though I would have walked through fire,

You always kept me at arms length,

I know I could have loved way more

Than anybody else,

But you wouldn’t let me in

Because you were still hurting,

And I can understand that

But I offered you healing,

But you just kept me at arms length

So when you fell I was unable to help,

Even though I really tried

And as I held you so close,

I was there as you sobbed and you cried,

From all the hurt and pain

Resonating time and again,

Yet I know I could have given you the love you needed,

And I believed I could have saved you

But you just wouldn’t let me in,

Because I understand that you were hurting,

And all I could is watch while you were drowning,

And I was unable to do a thing as you disappeared.
