He stares As I talk

He smirks As I cry

He laughs As I shake

And looks me straight in the eyes

He’s tall when I’m short

He’s proud when I’m not

He knows and he listens

To each one of my thoughts

He shows me my faults

He shows me my fear

He shows me my scars

And each one of my tears

Though he seems so surprised

When my tears cease to fall

And I know without me

He wouldn’t be there at all

So I take a good look

In this mirror of scars

And I smile and say

I’ll see you in the stars
