When Love Walks Through an Empty Room

You and me at the edge of our hearts
We really don’t have room
For hiding all we are
You say there’s enough of nothing
To let the stars go
Then you realize we’re not through waiting
Because sometimes
When love walks through an empty room
We do not see it

And we’re afraid to feel it…

Listening with only our hearts
We really don’t have room
To see ourselves as undeserving
Or shy away from the face of the moon
You say dreamers can’t be fighters too
Then you discover the beauty that remains in you
Standing from the fall that broke you through and through
When love walks through an empty room
Our open souls may receive it…

If only we hold tight…

Bravely enough to believe it
