You told me to shine, To speak my mind
You said you loved me all the time,
We were mother and daughter
But we were best friends
I could talk to you and you could talk to me
But most importantly, you told me to shine
I would say I love you and you would say it back
You told me to shine and everything would be fine
That things will get better in a moment of time
Well here I am shining
So tell me, when will things be fine?
It reminds me about what I tell my children. That no matter how bad it gets hold your head up high and shine. SO I feel this is the prefect poem that fits it. No matter how bad it gets...
You Told Me To Shine
