I know you love me, your love is true
But you have a funny way of expressing it,
And with that I haven’t figured out what to do.
Do I repeatedly try and help you?
Or do I simply just give up?
Do I promise to be there, when times are tough?
Do I ignore all my worry?
Or do I tell you how I feel?
The only thing that brings me back is the feeling that your love is real.
I cannot always see it, at least not the way I should.
I just want to be able to tell you one day that “I knew you could”.
I knew you could beat it.
And I knew you always would.
I just hope the faith I have in you
Helps push you to the next phase,
Just put down that aluminum…
And I promise, we will see better days.
The days that you’ve always imagined,
The days I’ve always wanted to come true.
The days where I can tell you…
“I’ve never been so proud of you”
I must stay strong, this time for you.
But Mom please live for me, as I would live for you.
