~*I've found myself holding my own hands,
Trying to keep myself from falling apart.
And I've found myself trying to reach out,
To the light I know exists in my heart.
And I've tried to keep it all together,
But it is only getting harder every second,
To silence these screams inside my head,
And to play the game of life, till the very end.
I laugh everyday, I promise I do.
And I try to keep you alive in all that I am.
But it's the weight on my soul, that doesn't lift,
Even if I give it all that I can.
I wish you were here, I really do,
Because somedays all I want is to hear you say,
'You've got this, my little girl, just keep going,
And you'll find the light somewhere along the way.'*~ ©
