Talk to Me

talk to me not about your woes
or your constant fears
but of your hidden hopes
you’ve buried deep within

talk to me not about the countless tears
your beautiful eyes have shed
but the number of times a smile
has lit up your beautiful face

talk to me not about your broken dreams
or the burdens that you bear
but of the blessings you’ve received
under God’s given grace

talk to me not about the lies and deceit
or the anger and hate that permeate
but of the joys that flow through your veins
and the love that makes your heart beat

talk to me of the sunshine that kiss your lips
not of the darkness that clouds your day
too many sorrows have laid this heart to waste
one more sad song and it will burst into flames
