Dust had gathered on my emotions
I thought them shut away for good
So afraid of being hurt again
So afraid I'll be misunderstood

So I closed my heart to humanity
My thoughts are my own to keep
Truly I have many passions
Though I've buried them quite deep

Then you came into my life
Your love ran me straight through
My feelings all in camouflage
I could not hide from you

You saw straight into my heart
Your love bared my very soul
Like a boulder off a cliffside
Once I fell I lost control

Overwhelmed with feelings
I'm trying to make some sense
All I know is I love you
I stand before you with no defense

You see me now maskless, naked
And to my grateful surprise
I find the courage to look at you
I see you love me in your eyes

A burden shared is a burden lightened
A life shared is a life enriched
