To be by myselfWould be the next best thing
To having what I have…
The man I love by my side.
When my dear friendLeft her nightmare of a mate
She couldn’t wait
To share the name of another man.
My mom listened to meLament how I couldn’t understand
Why one would rush into another’s arms
When she could be alone and enjoy her space.
Mom’s stare stopped me mid-sentenceMy dad passed away five years ago
She said that’s because you’ve never been alone.
the light bulb went on.
