Her

There is nothing I can tell you
To keep you from worries
I want to see you now
But you’re in such a hurry

Time keeps us from one another
I know you cry when you’re alone
But still you believe like no other
Force back the tears and pretend to be whole

You’re almost here kiddo
But not just yet
There is a reason we haven’t met

I warm your heart
When you feel like the last soul
I remind you, you can
No matter what you’ve been told

I try to remind you,
Don’t ignore the warm faces
Stop running before you adjoin your laces

I know that you feel
Like I’m all that you have
But don’t overlook all the others that can

Life has dealt you
Some challenges, I know
But you never headed or rejected them
You knocked them out cold

You’re a south paw kind of girl
They almost missed you before you swung
You kept showing them
You were far from done

You’re in the last leg
I know you’re exhausted
You think you deserve a break
But honey, you’re not done yet!

It’s taken some time
But no worries
We’ll finally meet

No one else knows you better
I am your goals, your life, and your dreams

I can’t wait for you to see me now
At times I wonder and ask myself how
Lost and alone in a world full of promise
I held your heart in my hands
Your beat was the strongest

I pumped through your veins
You helped me become
You lived for us both
You did all that you could

It’s great to see you now
The woman you always knew you’d become
