I know you are gone
And I know you’d want me to carry on.
I really want to make you proud
But I seem to be stuck in this black cloud.
Dad when you passed that day,
I only wanted the pain to go away.
Mom when I realized you were gone
I had no clue how to carry on.
I did not know what I would need
I only knew I had to succeed.
I knew I could not lose my way
So I fought my hardest every single day.
I realize now that all I need
Is someone who will simply believe
All I need is my faith
I know you guys are in a better place.
I try my hardest, I make good grades
But I can’t afford to get out of this place.
All I need is a little hope
I need hope that this is not the end of my road.
All I need is for the world to know,
I need them to know just how far I’ll go.
All I need is a little help along the way,
I promise you I will succeed someday.
