Still Here


Before I depart this life

I want to make things right

You have been that

Inspiration in my life

A gift you are

True & pure

My vision was blurred by far

I didn’t want to feel the pain

But the acid came in the rain

Was trapped in my brain

Wounds and scars

Flames of sorrow

No one saw

My fears

Hidden tears over

The years

Lost a treasure of peers

Why I’m still here
