Whenever

26 Feb

This is something that I wrote for one of my daughters when she went away to college.

Whenever

 Whenever you don’t feel safe at  night…

Look up ….I’m under that same sky WITH you.

Whenever you feel like the walls are closing in on you…

Spin around….I’m breathing that same air that surrounds you.

Whenever you feel like you’re too far away…

Just stand…I’m standing in the same sun as you.

Whenever you feel like you just can’t go any further..…

Glance back… I took that last step WITH you.

Whenever you feel like giving up and that  you just can’t win…

Listen hard…I’ll be the one whispering cheers for you.

Whenever you feel like you can’t take another step…

Look ahead…I cleared a path for you.

Whenever you feel like no one loves you…

Look inside…That’s where I’ll always be.

Tee is the one on the left. The one on the right is Tiya or "SPARE"  as I call her.  Spare is short For Spare Daughter.  Obviously, I'm the one with the big ole Kool Aid grin.
