I can still remember the way you said my name
When you begged me to finally trust you.
To open up the iron rib clad chest
And entrust in you my heart.
I still remember the way the sun poured in the windows
Of that beat up old car we sped through the streets.
The way we laughed and sang the songs we didn’t know.
And slept in our content.
I can still remember the way the world fell to pieces
On that day you told me no more.
The day you told me that I had been wrong to trust you.
The day you turned and walked away.
I can still remember the day that I first stood on my own
With legs shaking like a newborn foal
I stood and walked facing the sun
And left my distrust behind me.
Because you were the first person I truly trusted
And gave access to my heart since I learned to hide it.
And you’re misguided and naïve mind was not ready for that.
You asked me to trust you and I did
And you broke that trust regardless.
But I learned that even with a broken heart
Trusting is not the hardest.
