I remember - you standing there,
as I cried defeated, weakened.
I remember - you not taking,
silence for an answer.
My refusal to explain.
I remember - you just held me,
just held me as I cried.
You gave me strength -
though you claimed I've always had it inside.
I remember - you listened.
Listened while I unleashed it all-
Every dirty secret, every horrible detail.
I remember - after all was said and done.
You didn't look at me as the failure I have become.
You held me as the daughter I always will be.
I remember - you weren't mad.
When I was devastated with myself.
I remember - you understood.
Understood, what I had yet to comprehend.
I remember - we just sat and talked.
Lost in all the chaos, lost in all the tears.
I remember - no matter how bad it had gotten,
and this time being the worst...
You never left, never ceased to love me less.
I remember - in a way no one else can.
