I knew I had you when I began to think on my own
You comforted me when I could not fall asleep
You pushed me up mountains I didn’t feel equipped to climb
But I didn’t know how much I needed you until you were gone.
Those years without you filled my mind with self-doubt
I didn’t know I could bounce back from.
But bounce I did.
And you returned
Like a true love;
I knew you belonged to me.
But we must part again.
This time it is me walking away.
I know I can make it on my own now and be ok
You rest within my soul
Fueling my steps
As my new future awaits.
