Life, Living and Being

I can’t be you and I’m finding it difficult to be me,

Wanting to be the child but needing to be the adult,

I am lost, not knowing what to do,

Sensing things that I need to do

Life is reciprocal, that’s what I’m told,

Living is more than existing…I’m tired,

I don’t want to let you go, I still need you,

I miss you I’m trying, weakened by selfishness

Your memories fill me when I’m feeling empty

Your strength, bravery and love sustain me
