Everyday is a new battle she believes she cannot win,

Behind her smile she hides the pain that lies deep with-in.


She searches for her new beginning, trying hard to let go of the past,

She dreams of calmer, happy days and good times that will last.


While she sees only darkness, around her dances light,

Worn down by her warring, but never giving up the fight.


As fragile as a butterfly she sometimes appears to be,

But her strength makes her wings unfold, her true beauty for all to see.


Inside the voices churn and quarrel making her worry and doubt,

But those that love and need her never go without.


Despite the silent torment that leaves her feeling bare,

She envelopes others in her love, there’s always plenty to spare.


Many days she believes that she not needed at all,

Always in her heart she fears she may stumble and fall.


So each night hold her tight to your beating heart,

And hope one day she realises she’s your whole world, yes every part.
