I know some day you’ll have a beautiful life,
I know you’ll be the sun in someone else’s sky,
I know you’ll be the rainbow in someone else’s storm,
I know you’ll be someone else’s most sacred treasure,
I know you’ll be someone else’s heart beat…
I’m sorry I will not be there to see it!
I know you’re chasing stars in your persistent dark nights,
I know you keep covering up old heart breaks with new tattoos,
I know all you see is loneliness in crowded rooms,
I know all you feel is emptiness in small spaces,
I know you can barely keep your head above water,
I’m sorry I will not be there to support you through it!
I know it’s been ages since you felt like you are home,
I know you’ve been shot down many times,
I know breathing without me is like breathing through broken glass,
I know the painting you’ve been drawing in your head,
I know you don’t feel free like the wind,
I’m sorry I will not be there to help you through it!
I know I flew off with the wings of your heart and left you flightless,
I know you might cut somebody else’s heart with your shattered pieces,
I know someday you’ll look back at this as a sweet time of grieving,
I know someday you’ll heal seamlessly,
I know someday all the broken promises will be erased,
I’m sorry I will not be there to guide you through it!
If an egg is broken by an outside force, life ends…
But if it’s broken by an inside force, life begins…
Great things always begin from inside.
