Love Got YOU This Far

 

I'm alive, alive
I'm barely functioning, I'm
falling apart, internally dying

To the outside perception
standing strong
always a grin

I'm alive, alive
I'm crying inside, I'm
depleted, drained but

Somehow keep moving
on, I am my daughter
This story is for her

She is me
the next chapter
as my pages inevitably end

Just as she is her mother
who forever
holds a piece of my heart

Contained in our child
she a masterpiece
created from the best of both us
