My Dam

You donít know
Who I really am
Or what lurks behind
The giant dam
That I have built
Around my heart
To keep myself
And the world apart
For I am afraid
To let you see
Who I am
Or what I need

Iíve been hurt
So bad before
That I canít see
The distant shore
Where hope and faith
And love reside
Sometimes I think
My soul has died
I feel so alone
And scared
My painís so great
I almost canít bare

But if you carefully
Take my hand
Gently pull
And help me stand
And if you promise
To go slow
Maybe hope
Will begin to grow
And perhaps you will find
The person you seek
Because I think my dam
Has sprung a leak
