I think back to how you suffered
Trying to smile when you saw my tears
Saying
I’ll be okay

You promised
You’d always be with me
That I’d never be alone or
Scared

Seeing your weight drop
Your voice weaken
But you still said:
I’ll be okay

I held your hand tight
Terrified to let go
I only left because you promised
You’d be okay

You broke that promise
That very next day
They told me you
Weren’t okay

That day
I stayed strong
To make you
Proud of me

Seeing the darkness
On the families clothes
I knew
You broke that promise

There I stood
Alone
Scared
Holding a red rose

You said
I’ll be okay
But now
Years later


I feel myself
Weaker
In pain
Broken

But I feel
you here
Just like you
promised

So now its
my turn
to say
I’ll be okay

Just so
You don’t
Have to
Worry
