COOL


I'm not beautiful.
I'm cool with that.
I'm not skinny.
I'm cool with that.
I'm not tall.
I'm cool with that.
Not everyone supports my dreams.
I'm cool with that.
Not everyone shares my vision.
I'm cool with that.
I'm about to kick down the door of success and walk in like I own the place.
I'm cool with that.
I'm gonna leave the haters and naysayers behind.
Are YOU cool with that?

THIS IS WHY I MUST SET YOU FREE...TO BE

Sometimes I sit and stare at you
I know you're a good man and perfect for me
No matter how hard I try I cannot get you to open your eyes
To see that I am perfect for you
Tonight as you sleep
I gently touch your face
Amazed at what a beautiful man you are inside and out
Tears fill my eyes and threaten to spill
Because you will never be mine
In this quietness I hear your heart beat out a rhythm
My heart responds
You'll never know because you won't allow yourself to love me
I have tried to erase that pain inflicted by another
Only to succeed in hurting myself
My tears spill in sorrow for what will never be
I will never hold our child with your brown eyes
I will never hold and protect you through the storm
I will never grow old with you
The rhythm of my heart will continue to beat alone
Tonight as you sleep I say my final goodbye
Finally I realize I must let you go so that
You are free
I am free
To be
