For My Sister

Life never was simple.

But when I stood at the edge to the bottom,

I didn't think

That I could make it back.


back to where I was safe,

back to where I could live without the fear,

the fear of falling off

and hitting rock bottom,

with millions of other lost, broken hearts.


but right now,

               I guess

                I am almost safe.

                                                that is,














but maybe,

just maybe,

we can make it back together.

maybe, if you'll climb up for me.

I'll do all I can to help you up.

I promise.

so then maybe we can be safe.



It's all I can hope for.
