How often did I rely on you to tell me
“It’s all right … Things will get better”.
How often did I need you to assure me
“It’s OK … Things will work out”.
So many times I felt alone, unsure and depressed;
So many times I was angry, afraid and frustrated.
So many times I questioned “This is as good as it gets?”
So many times I thought “Will I ever be me again?”.
So many times it seemed I was the only one who could feel this way;
So many times I thought hard days would never end.
How often did I need to cry, rant and rave;
How often did I need to talk, whine and complain.
How often did I need your courage, wisdom and love;
How often did your caring voice lift my spirits.
How often can you call on me in kind?
How often can I repay your love?
As often as you’ll allow me …
Forever and a day.
