Be Strong

Be Strong

Dear friend, where has my strength gone
I’ve been searching for too long
I had it once in my grasp
I held it tightly, should have known it wouldn’t last

When will this end
When can I no longer pretend
When will this end
I need to move on
Life won’t be here for long
Time is slipping away
Something needs to change
I need to be strong

Dear friend, who has stolen my joy
I thought I’d find it in my trinkets and toys
I remember not so long ago
They consumed me such that I couldn’t let go

When will this end
When can I no longer pretend
When will this end
I need to move on
Life won’t be here for long
Time is slipping away
Something needs to change
I need to be strong

I won’t be here for long
Be strong
Move on
Be strong
