How I'd Help You

June 8, 2010
I wish I really was Tinker bell
I wish I could use my magic powers
Or create a secret friendship spell
Just to take your pain away
Just to stop your tears

You say that it’s all okay
And you tell me not to worry
But you tell me this every single day
We both know it’s a lie
All is not so well

I cry for you and only you.
Tonight as I lay in bed
I worry and worry until I’m blue
I can only trust that you can find your own way
That you will be safe

I’m not your mom or aunt
Or father or grandmother
I’m not your angel to flaunt
I am me, your sister, your friend
And I will always be here

And even if I can’t stop your pain, tears or sorrow
Even though I’ve know you so little
I will always be there for every “tomorrow”
So when you’re ready to dry your eyes and continue to succeed in life
You can count on me to be your number one fan
