My Heart Speaks in Whisper

Another smiling face
a lovey-dovey status
One more picture 
engagement rings,
wedding plans

I'm not the only lonely
heart tonight
but this aching heart
& empty house
make it feel that way

The safe bets & sure things
prove themselves untrue
& I wonder if anything stable
is really sure
or will those rules change too

Don't let me rain on your parade
or lessen your joy
or tear you down
My gloom will pass
I'll get away

And really, each new love
sparked & shining out
in this dark space
guides me toward hope
& a fire of my own
