Give me the strength I need

Sun, 05/03/2015 - 09:00 -- IT'S ME

Give me the strength I need

To love me

Give me the strength I need

To keep breathing

Please give me strength I need

Because I don’t have any left


I thought it was over

That my life would end

It would have to end

How could I continue when I don’t have the strength

To fight for myself


I thought it was over

When I saw the car coming

And didn’t want to move outta the way


I thought my life was over

When I didn’t want to live anymore


But you came in

And forced me to breathe

You gave me strength


You made me laugh

You made me smile

You fed me when I was hungry

And there was no food in my house

You gave me your sweater

When I was cold and didn’t have my own

You kept it real

You made me see my own talent and technique

When I refused to acknowledge it

You gave me the capability to do things

I never thought I could


You’ve done so much for me

When I didn’t deserve any of it

When I had done nothing for you in return

You gave me the strength I needed

To live

Even when I didn’t ask for it


You’re the reason I’m alive

And I want to thank you
