Holding back these tears I refrain
From stressing bad thoughts running through my brain
Counting down each second, day by day
Until you’re back by my side to stay.
On the verge of suicide, I sit back
Making sure I keep my mind on track
Realizing these hurdles make us stronger
Hoping they don’t keep you from us longer.
Trapped in a cycle, I’m feel alone
Praying to God they let you come home
I took our time together for granted
Learning from this situation we’ve been handed.
Just know I love you more than words can express
Even though I seem an absolute mess
Through these trying times we will prevail
Laughing as we recall this cruel tale.
I can’t even fathom how you must feel
Trapped in that box of brick & steel
Here for you I’ll forever remain
Knowing deep in my heart it’s not in vein.
