I Always Will

Trust me, I know that hopeless feeling
To see the world's beauty, but fail to find its meaning
To see the hours pass like a broken hourglass
Whose center is too wide to slow the sand

Trust me, I know that hopeless pain
To love something so much and watch it slip away
To want another chance to feel their leathered hands
Or see a smile grow upon their face

Every time I raise my pen, I'm bothered by a question
Does every twist of fate have to have a lesson?
Or can I just let it go, say that I don't know
And be more of a compass than a map?

I wish there was something I could do
The words I have are not enough to give to you
In those battles we can't fight, those demons we can't kill
Just know that I love you and I always will
