It felt like we had barely met
i looked at you, and knew you needed me
my happiness grew more everyday
and i realized i needed you too.
i remember how you would run to me every time i called your name
your messy curly locks bouncing every step
you kept my feet warm at night
and now i can't believe i'll never feel that warmth again
i tried my best to keep you here and safe
but i knew you were tired of fighting the pain.
Although it hurt to say goodbye
it hurt even more to see your suffering
sometimes i feel alone knowing that you're gone
but then i stop and remember that you'll always be in my heart.
