Not For You

I do not cry for you
These tears are not the wine
For your victorious dance
They are mine

Through my eyes
My soul did peak
It saw the lies, the hurt
No longer am I bound by the words you speak

I do not weep for you
Your lessons were harsh
In the darkest moment I fell to my knees
Your bitter tongue, had no restrain

Not a fool I was, though I did think
I see it’s me
Not to blame, that lays with you
My trust for a while it didn’t see

My eyes are open and yes my tears do fall
But they are for you, for pity for what it cost
A friend, a hand, someone to care
One day you’ll see, it’s you that lost.
