I’ll Always Be A Home For You

What is the issue?
Matthew Henry

And if you ever find yourself alone in the world, out of change to call someone you love, got no place to call home, remember me, and remember my love for you, that still breathes after all these years.

And when you lose your way in the world, and everyone you ever loved has disappeared, and you find yourself calling out their names in the streets after dark, close your eyes and remember my love for you, that still calls for you after all these years.

And if you find yourself in the home where you don’t recognize anyone, you look at your mother’s face but see a stranger, and you look at your father’s silhouette in the living room, but you don’t remember his name, and your little sibling and your elder brother that fight on the second floor, but you have no memories to treasure with them, walk out the door and remember my love for you, that still remembers every second of being loved by you after all these years.

And if you ever find yourself on my door, and even if you don’t remember the way, I will run out into the streets, barefeet, listening to your footsteps that ring as clear as a bell in the silence of the night in my heart, I will be so happy if you just remember, remember my eyes, and the way you stopped me when I said goodbye, how we loved each other through the lies and fears, and we still loved and loved until the weeks melted into each other, and we felt time passing by us in the blink of an eye.

If you remember, remember my love for you, that has kept me warm and alive when the world turned cold and bleak after you were gone. TC mark
