Captured Moment

You captured my heart
and my soul so completely
within sweet promises
you never meant to keep at all

As the morning arises
and spring again unfolds her glory
I realize only this - that I still love
yet in truth, I cannot give
this love to you, not anymore
for you have squandered its existence

I refuse to be the sacrifice
upon your altar of denial
for that was never meant to be at all
nor torn between the battle games
you choose to play these days

Time goes on, I find myself again
alive and on the mend
my soul is all I ever need
to awaken and enlighten me
and still, I am

And so, the price you made me pay
must come around and back to you
while my belief in love
stands true and strong
no matter all the wrong
you did to me

For I fly free of you again
and find my wings
are taking me
much higher than
Iíve ever been before...
