When the wind is too strong and throws me off balance
You are always ready to catch me
When I cry myself to sleep and feel like my life is over
You stay with me and dry my tears
When I’m angry at the world and scream bloody murder
You stay behind me and let me release it all
This may sound grim but it is a thank you
For being with me all these years.
You don’t hover around me, you let me shine
You silently support me and lend your hand from time to time
You don’t wait for me to fall, you sweep me off my feet
You may not always hear it, but I appreciate
everything you have done for me.
There is a line between us that we dare not cross
Not even a tippy toe out of line, our place, we will always know
Others may not understand, they judge, they berate, they point fingers
We know who and what we are, and that is all that matters.
