Rays of love reaching into my soul

making me happy making me whole

warming my spirit lifting my heart

staying with you never to part


Rays of love filling my need

the roots now growing from just a small seed

where once I was alone and searching for you

now I know love both old and brand new


Rays of love as fingers holding my spirit tight

guiding me through day leading me through night

wrapped in the blanket of a love so true

inside it there is only me there is only you


Rays of love never want to let them go

taking it simple taking it slow

knowing now what is true what is real

rays of love are all I want to feel


No one said it would be easy this life you choose to live

they didn’t tell you how hard it would be how much you would have to give

it was easy for you to believe it would be all roses and butterflies

but slowly surely you realize it was all just pretty lies

No one said it would be easy to face up to who you are

to realize that lies and using people would only take you so far

and slowly as people come to see who you really are inside

you find there’s no where on this earth left for you to hide

You had it so easy when you had someone to use to get what you wanted never had to work

just going on your merry way still living like a jerk

but one by one they all realized you’re not worth investing trust or being your friend

and slowly you wake up to find that you’re alone here in the end

It’s not so easy anymore to be the liar and the user

to take advantage of others and the their trust abuser

perhaps you will change before you find there’s no one who wants to be near you anymore

or maybe you will be as blind as stupid as much of a loser as you’ve been before

When you trust someone each time you give a little piece of yourself

something you can never get back even if they break the trust

sometimes it’s only a tiny piece and you think it won’t be missed

and others it’s huge chunks of yourself that can never be retrieved

There are those who you can give your trust to who will always keep it safe

they will never break it with lies or disloyalty they will be there for always

those are the ones that when you give a piece of yourself you don’t miss it so much

because they hold it in trust they hold it in love they hold it in truth

And then there are those to whom you give your trust who abuse it

they lie and use and twist and turn it until what you give them no longer exists

it becomes a hollow thing devoid of emotion lost forever in the abyss of their evil

never again will it be a part of you for it has become nothingness

Those you trust and those you learn cannot be trusted to each you have to give a piece

risk the losing of that part of yourself or find the reward in knowing you can trust them to keep it safe

those who break the pieces make it harder to reach out to those who don’t but one must always try

for in the end it is those who keep it safe who will be forever by your side
