afraid of all

i was afraid to love, afraid to feel
i was afraid that what i felt was real
i didn't understand why every time you took my hand
my heart seemed to skip a beat

i was afraid to let you in,
afraid you would only break my heart
but now i see i am happy, for all you have done is
saved me,
loved me,
and made me see i am not afraid anymore

i was afraid to die
thought that no one would cry if i did
i didn't understand that everyone is born to die
and that no one is immortal

i was afraid to fail,
thought it was all in vain
but now i see I'm happy, for i have lived a good life
with peace
and friends
and now i see i am no longer afraid of all
