Grey clouds you chase away,
And for you, I’d do the same,
Through heavy hearts and dull days,
I’ll walk with you always,
Through the rains and the heartbreaks—
Just as you would for me.
We’ll make it out together,
For somehow, you make things better.
Sleepless nights are less lonely,
And tears dry up leaving smiles behind,
You keep me company in the A.M at 3,
In the dead silence, you’re still here,
Chasing away the monsters under my bed.
Together we stand, hand-in-hand,
Against the demons in our heads—
You make things better, always do.
So, when the skies are grey
And it’s pouring down,
Know that I’m right here
Just the way you’ve always been.
Though the roads remain rocky,
And we still stumble around,
Walking it with you is easier,
And the journey is better with you.
Dedicated to my dearest best friends because they have been here for me through thick and thin. Thank you for stumbling around and finding your way into my life.
