I'm never there when I need to be,

And you know I'm terrible at being there for you.

I wasn't there when you needed me.

If cancer took you over would I know?

Looking out, you'll never see it as it is.

My selfishness is taking over. I am not

The one you should be asking for help.

Leave me and I'd smile through tears

If you finally realized that I'm not who

All of you seem to think I am.

Never come to a well for water

If it will only pull you to the bottom.

I wish I could be who you need me to be.

I can listen but I wish I could talk.

I'll try, but don't count on me.
