It's in the time when you're surronded
By nothing but air
And no one to talk to that the
Pain becomes too much to bear.
It's when you need it most,
That no one is near,
You bottle everything up,
The pain, emotions, and fear.
Starting a new life,
In a place with no one you know,
Can be one of the hardest things,
But it's a fear you can't show.
You have to protect your brother,
He can't know that you're scared,
As if moving across the country wasn't enough,
Then your mom's health - you weren't prepared.
You suit up to take life head on,
Act as your baby brother's second mom,
Take care of your mom, the house,
And family, while trying to remain calm.
It's a lot to deal with,
A lot of pain to bear,
But you're stronger than you know,
And by this, I swear.
Your support stretches across the country,
You've got people who care and love you,
Life hands us things that aren't easy or a choice,
But we know you're strong enough to push through.
May God bless you and your family,
With whatever life may bring you to,
You are always in my prayers,
I put my faith in Him to take care of you.
Written for someone I love and care so deeply about. Know that you have always got a shoulder to cry on, as long as I have shoulders. Know that I am always on your team. Always supporting you. Always. Love you to the moon and back.
