I wanted you to be my knight in shining armor Scooping me up, whispering, “it’ll be okay.” Cupping my face and kissing me Until stars shone in my eyes   I wanted your heart to join mine In this endless wake of today Side-by-side Soul-to-soul   You reach and I sense you I see you reflected in the moon I know you’re there but you’re not here   I’ve wept I’ve lamented I’ve shut my heart saying no more… Until it split open   So I crafted my own armor From broken-hearted shards And picked myself up Letting the sun kiss my face   I rewrote my story Word-by-word Day-by-day   Until stars shone in my soul Glowing whole Whispering, “it’ll be okay.”
