In the darkness I do lie
Liking the quiet of the night
As she reads a poem of a guy
Who’s not afraid of doing what’s right.
In my heart I yearn to be
As strong as the hero’s will
Whose spirit was unfettered and free
But whose love for parents were grander still.
Yet my love hides within my soul
Afraid to break the chains.
But withholding my emotions has taken its toll
And for my parents only heartache remains.
So to these two people I write this poem
To let them know how happy I am.
Then love is greater than anything I’ve known
And it’s helping me become a woman
