That doesn’t mean I can’t care for you
That doesn’t mean I can’t protect you
That doesn’t mean I can’t love you
That doesn’t mean I can’t live
See
Be
Here
With you
And find comfort in the layers of your brown when you speak of her
Talk about her with grace
Call me beautiful
Tell them I hope she comes back
Don’t expose me as if you wouldn’t appreciate if I came back
Tell them she had a tender heart and she let me in for a while
Tell them the time was worth it Describe the memorable photos of her smile
Explain that she had a courageous laugh because when her lungs could not find enough oxygen to breathe
Her chuckles
Gave her strength to believe
That she would be ok
And she could and she would
I can
