Everything To Me

You speak harshly

Instead of a caring voice

Like you are my boss

Still

You are everything to me

A bond that I can never sever

**

You treat me like a stranger

Instead of your blood

Like I am a burden in your life

Still

You are everything to me

A place in my heart forever

**

You are taking steps away

Instead of back to me

Like your independence is complete

Still

You are everything to me

A place here to come home to always
