The Best 4

If it’s too much to bare,

I’m here to place the burden on

things aren’t always perfect 

but it’s always worth working on.

This isn’t how I planned on 

ending the year

as you extend a hand 

with extensive tears

but if you ever need to talk, 

I’ll always lend an ear.

Maybe, I’ve been a bit complacent 

stuck in the same routine, 

pace up and down the pavement 

I guess distance took a toll, 

my job offers me hours 

but I didn’t expect this to be the payment.

I hope you know I still love you,

I still think you’re amazing —

special too.

Miss you’re smile,

your freckles too.

I failed, I should of been there to rescue you.

Guess, there’s somethings 

we both have to wrestle through.

Until then a text will do.

You have all my love,

all I want is the best for you.
