Why is it that I always must be?
The strength, the strong one for the world to see
Not letting anyone ever see the real me
All these feelings swirling deep inside
Who am I?
But in my world, I will hide
I will be the best at work, at the top of my game
I will be the shoulder to lean on when my friends are feeling pain
I will be the best wife and stepmom you ever did see
The rock for my family, an unshakable tree
When they need a lending hand
I’ll give them my heart
Not thinking twice, my love I will depart
How long can I be at the top of my game?
Never showing emotion and ignoring the pain
Just as life teaches us hard lessons to grow
Mine came swift, in a moment you know
I lost my sister in a car crash
The devastation, the heartache
How long will it last?
But I become the strong one once again
The rock for my family, the strength, the friend
Oh, how I just want to run and hide
Be the little girl who gets to cry
Then I’m reminded of my sister and her beautiful life
She tells me it’s ok, don’t carry all this strife!
Life is short and if you learn one lesson from me
Sister it’s ok, just to be!
Live your life and let it all go
There's so much more to this word, I now know
Let that beautiful soul come out and play
Learn to cry and let someone else make your day
It’s ok to be the rock sometimes
But learn to be the sand between your toes
All those beautiful places those tiny pieces go
Your life is meant to be lived
So, go my sister and dream big
Learn to be you and just do what you love
Life will be magnificent!
I will be smiling on you from above
Who do you know that shows incredible strength and what is special about them?
