Poetry – You & I

I once thought I could save those close to me.
Protect them from the hurt I saw coming.

Shield them from pain,
and help them carry their burdens.

I was young then.

I was naive too.

I never could do any of the above,
And I apologise for being inadequate.

There’s one thing I can promise you though.

You’re not alone.
You’ve always got me by your side.
Through thick, thin,
and all kinds of hurdles that life might hurl towards you.

So.

You can drop the mirror now.

Let’s go face the world together.
