You’ve had better days.
It’s crazy to think your best
days are behind you.
I don’t mind you leaning on me.
You give me the chance to be
what you need from me.
They’ve ruled out possibilities,
but their ability to diagnose you
has you questioning sanity.
But for the sake of humanity
and the family, I’ll find the knack.
Get better and don’t worry,
I’ve got your back!
