You can't take words back once they're said,
Nomatter how they burn your throat
Little one, it's time- take note,
Better keep them in your head.

Heartaches only bring down health,
They yank and tear the inside things
But once they're shared they scratch and cling,
So dearest, keep them to yourself.
When heart storms hit i understood;
Alone i drowned in silent tears,
I did not whisper in their ears;
Protecting them as best i could.

Looking back, i now recall
That further grief my silence fed,
So disregard the words i've said-
i don't know much at all.
