“Saying goodbye”

Saying goodbye is a very hard thing 

Tomorrow we lock up my Pappy’s place and hand the keys in 

The pain won’t stop 

My heart rate it going up 

My heart is pounding like a drum 

It’s been a month since he’s been gone 

It doesn’t seem real with him not here as I listen to his favourite songs

I still hide the pain behind a smile and a laugh cause that’s what I do best 

But it’s not healthy and it I wouldn’t suggest 

I’ve been crying all night long 

I pray and hold on tight as I listen to his songs 

I know I’m told I am strong 

But why did god take him to me it seems wrong 

It’s been 2 days since I cut but the record starts over as tonight I cut 

Because I’m stuck in a rut  

I feel like it takes the pain away for a while 

But I stand there while the blood piles 

I’m scared as hell 

Can’t you tell 

I’m not doing well

But I got the IHL to help me through 

They have been there with me through thick and thin and tonight’s just another time I need a hand to get back to a healthy positive mindset but with their help that’s not impossible they work wonders with me each day that I cannot even begin to explain they just get me and I trust them so I tell every single thing that’s wrong and most of the time they don’t have to ask they know something is wrong there amazing is all I can say I couldn’t have said it in a better way god thank you for putting them in my life 

To this day I am blessed with amazing people in my life my mental health professionals and the IHL are always by my side they have my back everyday and that means a lot I must say You gotta love them I wouldn’t be where I am today without them
