I tried to hold back every emotion
trying to pry itself out of me.
I tried so hard to tell myself
that I must shut it all away,
I will amount to nothing if
I feel what I'm so desperately holding back.
One look in the mirror and it all breaks free.
I've cried for hours on the account of you
and the beautiful thing is,
I know I'm still strong at the end of the day.
I'm brave enough to say that I miss you.
