I have built a wall so I won’t be hurt
A fortress is what I thought I need
Protect my soul, my heart to keep
I cannot bear another knife so deep.
Do I pretend that I don’t care
Do I feign - didn’t smile again
When I met you I felt the charm
Oh yes I heard the bells alarm…
Oh dear my heart did summersault
Be still my heart, don’t get involved.
Friends are what we’re supposed to be.
Our friends didn’t think what we can be.
What big surprise for us both
Didn’t realize, no warns at all
It wasn’t meant to go this way
Our paths weren’t supposed to go astray.
There was a line we should not cross
But cross we did, it’s not our call.
There was something I can’t explain
I never knew, it all just came.
How can I lie, how can I hide
The smile, the glow even if I tried.
Not walk but glide, all things aside
So clear to me, I must decide.
Do I admit first to myself
That yes I did, I really fell.
Do I break down what wall I built
To let you in, I don’t trust myself.
I let my guard, I let it down
Started to trust that you have found
The key I hid from everyone
I let you in, don’t let me down.
You hold my heart, it’s in your hands
What else is there , give it a chance
A chance to smile, a love to last
Life’s too short, I dare not ask.
And so the story now begins
A chance to see where it all leads
A certain magic, a lot of faith
A lot of trust we cannot break.
My heart my love look at me
Look in my eyes what do you see
It’s all there for you to find.
Yes, no more walls, nothing to climb…

Lovely heartfelt poem.
Let the wall fall brick by brick and take your brain along with you.
