what I'd give to see you heal

After all this time of living, I know you're still finding your feet
and that the adjustment didn't happen overnight and that it eats you up.

I know.

And I know that now you're scared to open up and let them in 'cause
they keep on leaving,
leaving scars all over your chest,
nobody seems to stay.

I know.

And I know that today you've cried a thousand tears
and you fear that these wounds will never heal.

I know.

You're bleeding and I can't find the band aids,
can't find the right words to soothe your hurting insides.

I know.

And I'm sorry I can't fix it all for you,
you have no idea how much I wish I could,
no idea what I'd give to see you be okay.

But we both know you will make it through this in one piece,
and I'm here,
to remind you when you forget.


  1. I can't even begin to describe how much this touched me...This definitely hits home to me in many more ways than one. It is beautiful, thank you! <3
