He Stayed

Anna Colette

He stayed, 

Oh My Lord 

He stayed... 

We hung out at my house,

Went for a walk to get air together

My younger brothers came running to us

Dad flipped out again and went for a drive...

My instincts took over, my brothers were all I saw

As I comforted them while we walked home.

He helped me make dinner for us 

He rubbed my back as I sat with my head in my hands at the table 

He held me without judging as I quietly cried and pushed my hands from my face so he could see me 

He was my comfort

And he stayed through the mess my father created.
