I Remember the Days When My Life Shone Like the Stars
I remember the days when I lived in the light,
So many said it was me shining bright,,
Compliments, , accolades...... I never believed them.
"They don´t know me", I thought," weak , insecure as I was."
Yet, on the outside I shone. They called me a Rock,
A Pillar for others to lean on, and I always let them.
It´s good they can´t see me now.
No longer a rock, ......but a rock smashed to pieces,
Out of my comfort zone,
Shining no light,
The girl that only I knew I was,
All through the days that they saw me shine.
Life was so good, in the days when I shone,
Hard work was easy, My love knew no bounds,
Another lame duck to lean on my shoulder,
Never a problem, in those days when I shone.
Now I can´t seem to help even myself.
Crushed like a dry Autumn leaf underfoot.
Crushed in my heart,
Crushed in my soul,
Crushed even in my mind.
Yes, my mind I thought I would always retain,,
Yet slipping away it seems,
Mad I am going, is that the truth?
There´s nothing left, I've no more to give,
And each day I find more difficult to live.
Just to live.
