Life was simpler

Went my own way

Never having to look back

No one worrying to come home to

Carefree and mistake filled days

Just me and tomorrow

Now I’m surrounded

Questions everyday, with no answers to some

I need to plan ahead

Have to make time for them all

No more sleeping in

Getting up to provide

Have faces that look up for help

Worrying so they don’t have to

I have to set examples

Do I miss the old days, the freedom?

I worry every second if they are okay

When was the last time I thought of me

But I don’t need to, they think of me enough

I never imagined a life with them

And now

I Imagine a life without then would be even harder
