How dare I have let it happen.
That I could've let you in.
And allowed myself to feel again.
How dare I have listened that you wished I'd succeeded.
And no matter, the harder I tried,
I let myself succumb to feel needed.
How dare I have looked into the mirror of your eyes
and perceive this plain person
could be beautiful inside.
I dare I let you make me feel I could soar.
When now my wings feel clipped
and I can fly no more.
How dare I feel the guilt.
To pay the price of love lost
and mourn the love that on faith was built.
How dare I feel sadness now that you're gone.
I didn't earn it, you didn't give it.
Let me get past sadness as the prize I have won.
How dare I make you the burden for me to be happy.
When all it took was losing you.
And me to be responsible for me.
