I stood there and I stood alone
Not to cry, never to mourn!
Moment of being strong took birth
I had to prove you my worth
You shattered as I walked along
Sometimes I patted, sometimes I sang a song
I broke inch by inch as I held you tight
And my soul withered in a painful fight
Days passed; years sang a new lullaby
I saw a new shine rising in your eye
But I cringed; felt like a dying flower
Holding my tears behind a thin veiled cover!
I am not strong; I let you believe so
Taking the hits for you; taking all the blow
My smile never faded till you smiled again
Can I now cry? Can I now feel the pain?
