You may not be around but I will be okay,
my heart may ache, it may question my fate,
but I'll keep trudging on fighting my dismay,
I will not shatter nor will I break away.
Walk on ahead I will, even if for a bit of a time
perhaps it may sway, a temporary lapse,
I will not let you take my smile away,
I will beseech to the heavens and bring it on back as I'll pray.
You will not be the end of me - Nay!
My tomorrow I will seek, come what may,
Forward on will I keep stepping until
a peace in me will come and permanently stay.
