Special dedication to a young lady.. she knows who she is.
Be strong child… they said;
in the face of any storm
Be brave child… they said;
when the lonely nights are cold
Advice from friends and strangers;
like the matter was all up to me
Put themselves in my shoes;
test how strong and brave they’ll be
There is only so much one can handle;
some shocks too great to comprehend
Must look for the force within;
must believe that time will mend
Holding on to my faith as I face this storm
Praying ever moment for nights less lonely less cold
Brave and Strong I ain’t! I’m just a child growing old.
