Cannot

Always afraid to say "I can"
She allowed others to tell her "you cannot"

Until one day...
She came across a man -
who believed in her
more than she did, herself
He showed her the path
And she walked ...
step by step -
Without realizing that he ain't following

Until one day -
She could not hear him
She searched for him
Called out his name desperately
An ache in her heart everyone could feel
She cried out ...
Told him she needed him
And, she loved him
But he did not hear her voice
People tried telling her to forget him

She said "I cannot"
And people said "yes you can!"
