Helena - The Dawn of Understanding

As we spent our time together
Dancing in the light
As we spent our lives together
Daring love to let us down

A few cracks appeared
In the walls of paradise
A few doubts appeared
In this time of joy

I saw the same smile
That captured my heart that day
Being tossed at other men
To steal their hearts away

I saw your haunted look
And heard your vicious lies
But my heart would not believe it
Though my head cried out in shame

I wanted so much to believe
That you were indeed the One
That my search was over
And my life had just begun

So a battle internal was fought
And the mind overcame the heart
I knew what must be done
Though it tore me apart

Unknown date.
