Justified

How do you justify the fear
that keeps you there
so far away
from me…?

Why won't you take a chance
and dance this dance
of life and love
with me…?

What keeps you closed
to all that your heart knows
to be
of love and tender moments calling
you let go and now you're falling

into a pit of blind despair
where every worry, every care
becomes reality
for eyes too blind too see

the light that shines so clear
the love that wishes to draw near
yet somehow still, you justify the fear
that keeps the dreams at bay

How long, love, will you choose to stay
away from me…?
