With You

There was a time I didn't know

just how much you loved me so

I didn't take care of me

I wandered through this life

bitter, thinking of all the pain and strife

I'll tell you, it was a scary place to be

Now that I'm aware

Of how much you do care

Life is a much better place

I look forward to each day

And the kind things you will say

Knowing it has not been a waste

I try to make the day

better in every way

I finally have my chance and it is now

The bad times are behind me

And right now, finally

I made it through, with you, somehow

                  This is beautiful. Sometimes it is very hard to not see how much you are loved. It's convincing ourselves, that is the hardest. Well done.
