“Your Heart” Needs You


Time has moved on without you here,

The world didn’t stop, as I shed a tear.

Every day your memory floods my head,

As I remember every little thing you said.


Pictures of you race in my mind,

Your memory is all that is left behind.

Hold me tight as I reach for the sky,

You said, “Buckle down girl and just try.”


Never give up or stop on your way,

No matter what anyone has to say.

You are no one’s puppet or mistake,

Never be foolish or come off as fake.


Closing my eyes when I feel the stress,

So, I can make it out of this painful mess.

I know you will help me to remain strong,

Papa, this dark night has been long.
