If love is written on your face, it’s hidden by the bruise
How can you love someone who does belittle and abuse?
I watch helpless to stop him as he suffocates your spark
Then turn away anguished as you embrace the crushing dark
It might feel like betrayal as I slowly walk away
I can’t allow my spark to dim, you’ll need it’s light some day
I know that you will find the strength to re – ignite your spark
Please know that when that hard day comes I’ll help you burn the dark.
