STILL Here (Five Minute Friday)

I’m cheating this week by using a poem I wrote some time ago. Actually, I think it wants to be a song but I lack the musical skill to write a tune and arrange a tune – any offers?

Still Here

We didn’t make it the first time round
A brilliant spark
But we couldn’t sustain the flame
Too young
Too black and white
We didn’t know strength comes from compromise

But I’m still here
So are you
Is the spark enough to see us through?
No one ever lived up to you
No one made me feel like you do
So I’m still here
How about you?

When life went wrong for me you were the friend
Who stood strong
Took my side
Eased my pride
Defended my truth to the end
Made me open my eyes and look at you again

And I’m still here
So are you
Is the spark enough to see us through?
No one ever lived up to you
No one tried to understand me like you do
So I’m still here
How about you?

Looking back I can see things have changed
From fireworks
To bonfire flames
But you still stand at my side
Watching our children with pride
Love lives on
Burning strong

And I’m still here
So are you
Sparks aren’t enough to see us through
But no one ever lives up to you
No one ever loves me like you do
So I’m still here
And so are you

Love lives on
Burning strong
Feed the fire
