No one to be there for

I found myself in those moments with you,

When you needed me,

When I could hold your hand,

Sit with you,

Be there no matter what…

You don’t need me like that now.

 

I found myself in those moments of helping,

Of being the one to listen

Her lifeboat as she drowned,

Taking the hurt that dragged her down

So she could float…

She doesn’t need me like that now.

 

I found myself in those moments of protecting,

Being the adult and guide for them,

Showing them new things,

Helping them understand scary ones,

Teaching them to fit in…

They don’t need me like that anymore.

 

And I am so, so lost.
