 I THOUGHT…
Written By: Diane

I thought you were different.
I thought you truly cared.
I thought you’d always love me,
That special love we’ve shared.
I thought you’d never hurt me,
Not intentionally, anyway.
But the tone of your voice
And the words that you say
Tell me you’re like others
In my life that’s hurt me so,
The safety and warmth I’ve felt
I hardly even know.
You’ve made me feel inadequate,
No matter how hard I try.
I can’t do enough or do it right,
So now I sit and cry.
I used to feel so special,
So protected and safe.
Now I’m always on my guard
Just waiting for the next wave.
I don’t know how to get back
To the way it used to be.
I never thought I’d be here,
So hurt, so sad, unhappy.
You said you’d always love me,
You’d honor, protect and care.
What happened to those promises?
Why aren’t you there?
You told me we’ll never make it,
You sounded so very sure.
If our special love ever existed,
So true, so deep, so pure,
There’d be no question of tomorrow,
Even when today is rough.
When did that love become
Inferior, not enough?
I thought we’d see eternity
Together in hand and heart,
Now I see loneliness,
Living together, but apart.
I thought our life would be different,
One like in a storybook,
I wish we could go back,
I wish wishing was all it took.
