A Million Tiny Moments

You’ll deny me someday,
But that’s just fine, you’ll see.
Ashamed of one another,
Is just how it should be.

A twisted letter leaves my hand,
Along with tears of woe.
I love you more than life itself
But dare not let it show.

Unrequited sighs of love,
Imprisoned in my breast.
I crush your fireflies one by one
To prove that dad knows best.

If only I could stop to smile
Or even hold a hand.
Just why I never listened,
I fail to understand.

A million tiny moments
Have sailed up to the moon;
As days go by without you,
In solitude, I swoon.

Seasoned with excuses,
I hide behind my shell.
Your million tiny moments;
My heaven and my hell.

Undaunted by my failures,
You never cease to smile.
My eyes are now wide open -
If only for a while.
