Life is Cruel

Life is Cruel

I know in my heart that you are the one.
But life is so cruel

My life is so full of others
Our love can never be

So now I live with a lonely heart
One that cannot show true feelings

One that cries at night
As I lay next to the one
Whom I’ve vowed to live my life

I dream of your touch
I dream of what life would be like
If it were you lying next to me

Others have feelings more important than mine
So I can only dream of a life of my own

The choices I made before you
Have destined me to be lonely forever

The only true love I can allow myself
Is the love of the children sleeping soundly
In the room down the hall.

I know in my heart that you are the one,
But life is so cruel.
