When I run out of stories to tell you,

 Will I lose you too?

 When I run out of ways to inspire you,

 Will I get booed?

When my jokes are no longer funny,

Will I become your joke?

When new ideas seem to elude me,

Will you lend me your book?

Behind this strong willed woman,

Is a soft melting iron,

Who’s been broken and scarred,

But still has the strength to forge on.

I’ve got family and “strange best friends”

But that’s a topic for another day,

Because I too have fears,

Yea, that never seem to go away.

Maybe I should be a little optimistic

And stop watching the big clock tick,

I’ve lost, and I’m still losing,

People in my life that should stick.

So with a big heavy heart,

I write to you too and ask,

After all is said and done,

Will you too be gone??
