I’m a survivor; I’ve won many fights.
I never am lonely; I’ve seen many sights.
I ’ve been through a lot, maybe too much,
But if this doesn’t stop me, I need no crutch.
I must be faithful to my father above,
For he knows whether I am worthy of his love.
My thoughts can be jumbled, but soon I ’ll be free.
Don’t worry when I’m gone, one day you’ll be with me.
But for right now we must be joyous, for I have lived another day,
And soon I ’ll be victorious; I will be peaceful and quiet,
And maybe even near.
When I am gone, my dear, my dear.
Don’t worry about me for I will always be,
As strong as I was, and never flee.
