I've always been strong and always stood tall
I've fought for myself, everything and all
But you've broken me down, the can not bring down
And I hope you think of me and know I'm not around
Your personal cheerleader, your pick-me-up Sue
I've done my best to do right by you
I understood your worries and everything you needed
But I forgot about me, you made the leader the lead-ed
It's not even the fact that I'm angry or hurt
It's how I was treated after crying into your shirt
It was the way you walked away when I needed you the most
It was the look in your eye; blankness against a blank coast
And even after I gave you my all and my will
I helped you, I coddled you, even then, even still
You used and abused and you hurt and you took
But what kills me is when you just give me that look
Like nothing ever mattered, like I was no one to you
How could you move on to something so new
All along I thought it was you who needed me most
But you taught me it was I who needed you as my anchor, my coast
Surprised, ashamed, that is where I get taken aback
That you have made me the Jill to your Jack
It is I who have followed you and fallen down too
But it isn't me getting up first, it is you
And yet I still don't get it, I don't understand
How you do not even need my embrace nor my hand
I crave for your smile, your eyes, and your hug
I held on too hard, I called you my bug
You were my first love, my confidant, my all, my best friend
I always thought you would be there until the end
So congratulations are in order at the end of the day
Kudos to you, you made me this way.
