I Don’t Wanna Cry

I wrote this song about 2 1/2 years ago after I lost my Aunt Celeste.  I think it’s very fitting for how I feel right now until I can gather my thoughts into a new song…

We all experience loss at different rates, with different emotions, different methods and through a plethora of different ways.  Writing is how I have learned to deal with life’s palate of emotional turns and obstacles..  I hope you find comfort, release and relate-ability with what I write.

I Don’t Wanna Cry

Memories are fading pictures sitting on a lonely mantle some things are too hard to handle

The heart is a revolving door of emotions mostly good, but lately sad In the wind I can still hear your laugh

No more hands, no more hugs no more passion, no more love Is this real? I can no longer feel

I don’t want to cry and admit we reached the end I don’t want to lie and say my heart will fully mend

I just wanna believe you are still with me so I don’t want to cry Cause that would mean goodbye

Peering through the looking glass I am filled with so much sadness The mind is playing an awful trick

I close my eyes and I see your face I open them up and it dissipates Why did you have to leave so quick

No more hands, no more hugs no more passion, no more love Is this real? I can no longer feel

I don’t want to cry I won’t admit we reached the end I don’t want to lie and say to you that my heart will mend

I just wanna believe you are still with me so I don’t want to cry Cause that would mean goodbye
