Hush, my friend, you’re safe now,
And though the tears may fall,
Let it out – I will not judge,
You’ve gone beyond the call.
For while you may not understand,
You need to let it go.
Just one more breath is all you need,
One more and you will grow.
I’ve known your pain for so long now,
I’ve longed to ease your soul.
I’ve heard your cries deep in the night
And still you reached your goal.
Your sacrifice, unknown to most,
I know has cost you dear.
So, take my hand and let it go,
You’re always safe right here.
