On the Inside

You were looking for someone older who had a sturdy shoulder to cry on  
We both knew it was wrong but you needed someone strong to rely on  

Honey I'm just as fragile as you  
Inside I'm nothing but sticks and glue  
I may be a bear on the outside  
I know, and so do you, he was better for you  
You made him such a beautiful bride  
I had to push you away even though I wanted you to stay... so much  
I miss your youth and your style, your wit and your smile, ... your touch  
I'm falling apart on the inside  
You said that our age was just another page, and I wanted to believe you  
But the clocks on the wall, I'm afraid it says it all, sooner or later I'd leave you  
I never wanted to pass away leaving you old and gray, and all alone  
Don't want you crying as part of you is dying, at my funeral stone  
I could tell that you cared when you caught him mid stare, made you blush  
I knew you wanted to stay but you turned to walk away... in a rush  
On the inside
