                hand side border


Is there a reason I care?
Is there a reason I live?
Is there a reason I love?

My heart was dead,
My soul was dark,
My body nothing more
Than a vessel for broken dreams.

Yet there is something
Which I don't understand...
Why is it when you walk into the room
My heart lives again
My soul feels lighter
And the broken dreams seem
Insignificant

Is there a reason I care?
Is there a reason I live?
Is there a reason I love?

Yet I am left
With more questions
Than answers

Why do I care?
Why do I feel?
Can I love?

I don't know the answers
Not yet
These are the questions
I do not fear
For it doesn't matter
What I can do
What I fear to know is

Can you care for me?

Can you feel for me?

Can you love me?
