Endless nights of counting sheep

Is what I needed to get some sleep

I prayed things would go away

I wished and I hoped you would stay

Tryed hard to be enough

Staying strong is very tough


I wanted you but you did not want me

And maybe one day you'll see

That I was your blue sky thats now faded gray

And it was you who made it all go away


So when you're reading this years from now

Maybe the tears will come streaming down

When you realize you hurt me when I loved you

And I would have done anything to see it through


But you left and made me alone

When I ached and I begged for a home

Someone to be there for me through thick and thin

You helped me realize it's me, I am my own kin


So here I am fresh and new

Learned my self worth thanks to yu

I am happy beaming as a star

Thank you for allowing me to come this far
