How Long

How many years has it been?

Since I’ve known you

And watched you grow

 

How many months has it been?

Since you’ve been there

And been a light for me

 

How many weeks has it been?

Since you’ve last impressed me

And raised the bar again

 

How many days has it been?

Since I’ve tried to keep up

And be thought of as your equal

 

How long has it been?

Since you’ve noticed me

Or I’ve crossed your mind

 

How long will it take?

For me to show the world

Maybe I can be just like you
