Poetry by Luke W.

Live By You

Here I am in need of your help again

Feel so ashamed, I’m a grown man

By now I should do this myself

But here I am crying for your help

I know right now that you can’t be proud

I know that I have let you down

I’ve asked for too much throughout my life

I don’t deserve to always have you by my side

Then you began to speak as you lifted your head

I couldn’t believe the words that were said


The words said


If you hadn’t been born, I’d probably be dead

That makes me forever in your debt

Every day I wonder if I make you proud

So never say that you ever let me down

I will always be here through and through

Because the person who makes me better is you

When you need me I am always floored

Because I wish I could’ve helped you more

I can say that even long after I die

That I will forever be right by your side
