To My Walker

Running free
Flying high
Everything to me
Everything to me
You and I

Building me up so I would never hide
Power, Strength
Always living inside

Sweat down my face
Not a care in the world
I had you behind me
My favorite girl

But now I am lost
I am not me
Without you, I don’t know
Who I am going to be

No choices to be made
Change is here
So, suck it up 
And show no fear

Will miss you dearly
But I have to get better
Forever in my heart
Always walking together.
