will you love me still?

when i am frightened
and the sun rejects my corner of the world,
when the liars and manipulators from my past haunt mi
and tell mi i am nothing but a failure
will you hold mi close
and love mi still?

when i am overpowered beyond my strength to continue
and have all but given up,
when the joy has left my heart
and breathing is a chore,
when i feel ive accomplished nothing worth anything,
will you hold mi close
and love mi still?

when i get tangled in the web of old memories,
wrapped in the anxiety they choke mi with,
when the bruises of my past make mi a prisoner
and all my dreams seem to fade away,
when my mind goes a million miles a minute in a thousand different directions
making scenarios that stifle my well being
will you hold mi close
and love mi still?

and when i finally defeat the battle of the past
and find contentment in today
when the smile on my face reflects in my eyes
and im strong and brave at each sunrise
when ive finally found my peace in my life
and no longer need to cling
to you or anything any longer..

will you hold mi close
and love mi still?

~mi
