Why won't you love me?

For years I didnt care, the older I got

I didn't need you...

so I thought.

I'm loveable, I've been told that

And I know you would've loved me too

if I only had the chance to show you

Should I cry at my age?

Should I think of you?

I'm a grown woman with the heart of a child

It hurts

the older I get

the worst I feel

Do I tell you

Where are you?

I'll just continue to hold it in

and cry in secret.
