How can I tell you not to cry
when tears are streaming down my face?
How can I tell you not to be afraid
when I walk around in constant anxiety?
How can I tell you to be strong
when sometimes I can barely lift my head?
How can I tell you to just have faith
when I’m not sure I believe in it?
But how can I tell you to just give up
when I need you here with me so much?
And how can I tell you it’s not worthwhile
when there is at least one spec of joy awaiting.
All I can say is this is your life
and I respect the way you are feeling.
And although I can’t take this away from you
I’ll walk with you as long as you need me.
