Why I Stay Strong

working together

If I didn’t have a sense of humor life would have eaten me alive.

If I let my past rule I would have died a long time ago. 

If I didn’t have a care in the world I would have given up.

If I let myself down I would have also let you down.

So when I say I’ll be there for you then I’ll be there as best I can.

I will bring you the sunshine when you think it no longer exists.

I will bring you Kleenex to wipe away your tears.

I will carry you when you fall and pick you up when you are down.

Which is why I stay strong, to let you know I’ve been there too and together we can get through it all.
