Not My Place, Anymore

what am I but a memory
of forgotten things best left unsaid,
of painful images of the past,
of the shadows through which I tread.

I daren't show my face to you,
or I might disturb your grace.
I daren't even say hello...
I no longer have that place.

all I bring to you is pain,
through the girl I still love,
your daughter that I helped to live,
but now watches from above.

what am I but a reminder
of memories best left unsaid.
I'm hiding again in the shadows
that have trapped me in my head.

she once rescued me from them,
these shadows in my head.
but now I'd rather be numb inside,
than moving on instead.
