You see me
Through the lace curtain
All looks well
Beautiful home
Loving family

You don’t see
My struggles.

Daily I try
To give them away.
I hold them tightly
Let them weigh me down,
Trouble my heart
Overwhelm me.

The lace curtain
Can not hide
The struggles
My heart holds inside

All is seen
Christ knows.

You don’t know
The person behind
The lace curtain.
