The reason why I am still here

Is because someone out there cares

Though they may not seem like it

Though I may not know how much they do

Someone

At least one

Cares about me

And wants me to be here

There with them

No matter what

Through thick and thin

And they want to be there with me

Through thin and thick

 

The reason why I am still here

Is because I have so much to do

So much to accomplish

So many things to show

So many things to find

So many more things to know

And if I am not here

How will I ever know them?

Find them?

Show them?

Accomplish them?

Do them?

 

The reason why I am still here

Is because I still have so many fears

That need to be conquered

Struck down with my own sword

Brought to their knees

Begging me for mercy

All of my fears

Need to be forgotten

And conquered

 

The reason why I am still here

Is because of all the songs I haven’t heard

Off all of the songs that have the ability

To make my heart ache

That I haven’t yet discovered

That I haven’t yet played

And sung with passion

 

The reason why I am still here

Is because of all the things I love

Because of being up high

Because I haven’t yet figured out how to jump

And not fall

 

The reason why I am still here

Is because I haven’t dreamed every dream there is to dream

Not yet

I haven’t experienced the impossible

Like I can’t when I am awake

I haven’t felt the feeling of flying again

Like I have in my dreams before

 

The reason why I am still here

Is because I still have secrets that haven’t been told

I haven’t shouted to the world

About all of the things I have done

I haven’t told everything there is to be told

 

But

Most of all

The reason why I am still here

Is because out there

Somewhere

Somebody is waiting for me

Every day of their lives

And I am their reason

Why they are still here

Too
