SHYLANALA91 FOR (ZCH)(im glad he stayed)
I go back to those days,
I sit and watch the struggle we went thru,
The bruises on your face,
Black and blue,
The stories only I knew.
The trust you gave,
Your life I wished to save.
I had to be brave.
You were a threat to some,
One look and they would run,
Fear in their hearts,
All I knew was I'd play a major part,
But where to start,
Your life on the line,
I couldn't waste a moments worth of time.
I begged and prayed; if he would listen to any words let them be mine.
Just let him stay,
A wall of broken trust,
Of battered wounds,
Of hostility and anger,
One last breath before I start the climb.
Will it be worth it,
Will I make it to the top before it's too late?
Is this the last chance?
Then help me make this stance,
I will not move,
I will not let your life be lost,
I won't let you go,
Life's been unfair to you, this I know,
It can only get better,
This I can show,
I watch as you down another drink,
And another and another without a mere blink,
Take another hit,
Another round of oblivion to wash away the pain,
I can feel the storm coming,
I feel the droplets of rain,
Another method you think will wash away your pain.
Blood drips from your desperation,
Time is running out,
I begin to beg and shout,
I can't let your light run out.
You thought me insane,
For ever giving you the time of day,
When everyone else turned on you and walked away,
I was still there,
For once you had someone that cared,
Someone who would listen,
Your pain I would share,
It wasn't a mere game,
I didn't take a dare.
Life is precious,
Yes even yours,
I couldn't let you end it.
I knew you could overcome it,
I knew you were strong,
I saw it there in your eyes,
I told you truth while everyone else fed you lies.
Today my lips curl into a smile and part for a sigh,
You're still alive,
You breathe today.
Every ounce of me knows the fight was worthwhile,
Because now you're out there somewhere,
And on your face is a smile.
If I never see you again,
I'll be able to go on..
Just promise me you'll never, never give up and that you'll always just...
