The past was unbearable
Had you by my side to make life a little bit easier to live
Held my hand to help me cross the street
Taught me to walk
My first words were mommy
So what now?

This thing...
This monstrous thing could be consuming you whole
I don't know what to do
I'm afraid to let you go
I don't want you to leave
Everyday you could be leaving me alone more and more
Leaving me crying and scared
What should I do?
This monster, this thing could be

What do I do?
I'll stay with you for as long as I can
I'll try and stay happy
Make you proud
I'll be strong just like you
Face the world with my head held high
But most importantly
I'll be with you through it all

But this upcoming birthday all I wish for is one thing
Nothing special
But mommy what I want from you?
Just please don't go...
Life won't be the same ever again
I won't be the same
I promise you that
