If only they could see
what once was here
and what it's become.
There's a reason the pain no longer wins
and my hope no longer sways.
Where else could I get this strength?
How else could I get so brave?
I use to rely on everyone around me
when i knew no way else.
Each time i was left just as broken
yet in more need than I was before.
I was determined to find a way,
"this time I will be stronger," I'd say.
But when everything is different than it seemed
and the promises you trusted vanish -
What is left?
I could not comfort myself
when I deceived myself so cruelly
and I could not explain to others
what I hardly could explain to me
But the quiet presence that said
nothing at all
Was everything I needed.
It spoke louder than the words
that were too often heard
and softened my heart
when everything else hurt.
