“The Woman You Don’t See”
No one ever saw her broken heart. They were too busy staring at her unique but beautiful smile.
To look at her, you’d think she has it all together.
No one realizes to be in her shoes, you’d fall the first mile.
Those eyes, somewhere between cognac and honey, hold more heartache and pain, than anyone could possibly know.
At least now she knows it’s true, you really do reap what you sow.
Deep down she wonders what she did wrong, that caused her to lose so much.
Maybe it’s the fact that she’s a little crazy. Perhaps if someone tested her for it, they would see, that she may have just a touch.
All she ever wanted was to be the best wife and mother ever.
She knew it could be possible, if they could all just stay together.
She soon found out though, that it wasn’t meant to be.
She would have to suffer in silence, to make sure no one could ever see.
She would be forced to walk that road of bitter loneliness alone.
She had to keep that part of her hidden away, like when a dog burries a bone.
Yes, she would have to keep her eyes straight ahead.
She must remember and study, all of the scriptures she’s read.
No one knows how, but with everything she’s been through, she hasn’t lost her faith yet.
She believes it’s possible that her future husband, is someone she hasn’t even met.
Until then, she’ll keep those eyes on the prize, and that head held high.
She’s going to make something of herself, even if it’s the last thing she ever does.
She’ll make a list if she has to, to make sure she never becomes who she once was.
