Sanity is an illusion people came up with to make themselves feel better.

Behind those shoulders
I see your wings,
A reflection of your soul
That for others would sing

You've given me comfort
From sorrows of past,
As long as you're there
Life's reason will last.

I never will know
Of life without you,
You've given me joy
Despite the troubles I've seen through

So your body may fade,
I know mine will too.
But I'll be happy in knowing
I'll still be with you

An assignment for a class that was originally supposed to be a thank-you letter to someone of importance in my life. For my Mom, whom was always there for me.
