I couldn’t find me

I gave you my love

and you held it so near.

I gave you my heart

and you held it so dear.

You gathered my laughter,

and stood by my pain;

a guard by my fear

till I joined you again.

But when I gave you my anger

you lowered your arms,

and stepped from my side,

as if fleeing from harm.

And you turned from

my tears, when I gave them

to you and they fell to my heart

and washed my love through.

What I wanted you see,

was to give you myself,

but when I had finished

removing all that,

you wouldn’t accept,

then I couldn’t find me.
