O'Fallon, IL, USA
I ask you that question,
hoping to receive no lies,
but your voice was truth enough.
You told me you cared
and not to worry,
things would be alright.
But our relationship kept growing,
and your voice did the same.
Each time I asked that question,
all I heard was that same voice.
It seemed eager for something
probably not the same as me
but I listened to those first words,
And again you said, "Don't worry,
everything will be alright."
But time passed, things happened,
and I proved you wrong
that your voice was truth enough.
You were full of deceit,
I was full of despair.
Your voice stopped saying "Don't worry."
And the last time I brought up
that question, hoping to receive
no lies, I found yet again
Your voice was truth enough.
Time has passed, and wounds have healed,
and now I know from my experience
Everything will be alright.
