Wish I could have you in a picture frame on my wall.
I'd hang you on a hook so you'd never fall.
But somehow people can't be put in a glass case.
They don't want to stay there even if its to keep them safe.
What's scary is the ones you care about,
Want to leave and find their own way around.
You want to hold them tight and not let go.
But they break free even though,
You try so hard to keep them close.
Its frightening releasing what you love the most.
So I'll try to live through these sleepless nights.
Praying with braided fingers that you'll be alright.
And I will keep trusting that,
One day you'll come back,
To my open arms.
I'll wait with all my heart.
