All That You Can Be
She was a sister and some could tell
We talked on the phone everyday and laughed
a lot as well.
I saw something that others could also see
Something was affecting her and that “something” was me.
She went away and this was my time
To make good on my promises at the drop of a dime
This was a painful decision but I knew I was right
I needed to break away so she could return to the light.
I’ve cried many tears for my love it runs deep
She even took me in when I was struggling on the street
Sometimes decisions aren’t easy to say
But when love is involved those decisions we make
It hurts you now and this I can see,
Don’t forget there’s another one that hurts and that one is me.
No more worrying and losing so much sleep
I keep to myself so you can be all that you can be.
