And you woke up thinking
I’m going to be better for you
But that’s the problem
You only want to get better for someone else
Not yourself and I knew there was love
Love inside you that you never shared with yourself but gave freely to everyone else

And it was in this moment my heart ached for you
Suddenly I knew you like you were a part of me
I found myself sitting in your life
Not knowing if I could reach you
Then there was the pain
The thought of being a good person
Kept you going you never stopped trying

But you were tired
But you were trying
You were fighting battles I couldn’t conceive
And the rope of life felt slippery
And days felt like years to you
Certain that the world was done with you

And I hoped that you would make your way
I hoped some day you would find peace from the raging storm inside of you
