Where have you been so far?
Look at us how grown up we are;
For no reason you have gone afar.
I wish the time could rewind to what we truly are;
But you have always been the one on my wishing star.
Please hold me tight;
No matter how much we fight;
You are my only light.
How much ever I hide my tears;
You understand and help me overcome my fears.
You have been the rainbow in my sky;
And made me realize that I do not need wings to fly.
You were my only hope when I was ready to die.
When you asked me if I was OK,
I responded that I was fine.
I could not tell you that my sky had turned dark from blue;
Whether you would accept my flaws is something about which I had no clue.
But you came and said “That’s the only reason I love you.”
