I Failed You.. - Poem by Jake Samuelson

What should i do baby?
Last i heard from you, you were slipping away..
You couldn't walk, you couldn't see..
You were lost in your facade of strength..
You had a shoulder to lean on, but you brushed it away.
I was there for you.. But you didn't answer
When your life is obscured, and your vision is fading
I cant sleep, i wake every hour in the night..
Here for you i am, here for you i will remain
I'm your shoulder to lean on, im your guardian.
You are my heart, and i am your armor.
How pathetic have i become?
I couldn't even save you from yourself..
I failed you.. In doing so i failed myself..
Swore i would always be there for you baby
Now if what i said was true.. you'd be by my side
I dont know where you are
All i know.. is that i have failed you..
I failed my baby girl..
I miss you, come back to me..
Give me a second change, to reincarnate myself
Into the image of invincible, to never fail you again.
