5 Years

Tia Davis/テイア

YEAR ONE I was so confident in every word I said

Every action I did

I had no shame

So confident in every way

No one can tell me I wasn’t worth a thing

The first time we met I never knew

You would be the one who makes me feel

Like I can become new

Pure with no hate in my mind

THE SECOND YEAR You made me love myself

A hundred times more

When days were dark and my heart was disoriented

Which at the time I didn’t know was possible

You helped me open my eyes

When mine were sowed shut

You helped me wipe the blood away

And healed me with your faith

THE THIRD YEAR I knew you were real

You stayed there through all of my changes

You watched me grow

From a birdie to an owl

Something I can be happy to be

You were a butterfly with holes in your wings

I am aware but somehow you have enough flight to help me stay sane

You are my blessing

Like many others

But I know your a butterfly I will be able to keep

You never fly away


Is when I knew

There will be one day I will release you

To make someone else’s day

The way you made my life change

It would be selfish to keep you hidden away

To me I believe

For the five years we have spent I hope you know

That was time well spent

THE FIFTH YEAR I realized I just needed to say

You are my best friend I never wanna give away

But if you need me to all you have to do is say it
