I am here

I am here

I kept my emotions and feel
I’m too afraid to show my real 
Always speculating, always worrying about how to heal 
Then you came to hear 
You said, don’t cry or tear 
If you need me, I am here 
My world was filled with fear 
I gave my all and yet I’m not near 
Stuck in reverse, became my peer 
You said, don’t cry or tear 
If you need me, I am here 
You are the light who guided me home 
And ignite my bone 
I started dreaming of Rome
Eating vanilla ice-cream cone 
You were there when I’m alone 
Everything changes, even stone 
You said, don’t cry or tear 
If you need me, I am here
