Please talk to me
There’s something you’re trying to hide
I might be able to help
Open the doors and let me inside.
I’m not blind
I see your bloodshot eyes and escaped tears
Talking often helps
Open the doors and I’ll lend you my ears.
I have noticed
When you talk you seem to be in a muddle
Slow down, take a breath
Open the doors so I can give you a cuddle.
You’ve been absent
You stand in front of me yet you’re not here
Come back to me
Open the doors and allow me to come near.
I’m here for you
You don’t have to walk this dark path on your own
Let’s be strong together
Open the doors and know you are never alone.
Open the doors
There’s no need for you to hide your pain
I’ll listen but never judge you
Open the doors and never close them again.
