The Truth in Passing

tears were streaming down her cheeks
but they always do
she has to break to let me know
her losing battle to tears
is what it takes to let me know

and today he’s the one who is enough
but what does tomorrow hold?
and I’m strong enough now
to tell him I don’t need him
I let myself know

I’m the only one to count on
because I can count the love that passes by
I’m the only one to count on
because I can count the days that pass me by
I’m the only one to count on
because everything else can pass me by


my mother’s in the hospital
and I am here alone
wondering if I need her heart attack
to let me know
her 95% clogged artery
to let me know


and in that comes a burden
feeling as though you’re necessary
tending to give it all away
draining myself for a theory of greater good
putting myself into people
who either will not let me in
or will devour me whole

in the end I have learned it is good to know

I’m the only one to count on
because love passes by
I’m the only one to count on
because days pass by
I’m the only one to count on
because everything else passes by

this is what I know of myself
and no; you cannot count on me
I’ve felt the cost of being devoured
I’ve felt the itch of refusal

I’ve decided
I’m the only one to count on
everything else will pass me by
