I get that life isn't only about bliss and happiness,
It's death, struggle, it's love, it's tears.
Its trepidation of ever having to face our deepest fears,
It's that very painful experience,
That each one of us has had.
Its the unbearable rage,
that we feel when we're mad.
It's being loved by someone special,
That at one time made you smile.
It's the pain of forgetting who that person is,
but the memories that make it worthwhile.
It's that poor child that you see on TV
and you wonder what if that was me ,
It's the good times I'll never forget,
and the bad times and painful regrets,
It's the hug that we all need,
its the love that keeps me at ease,
When I'd rather drown in sorrow.
Life is what makes me hold on for tomorrow.
