Dedicated to my sisters
If I could remake the world for you,
If I could protect you from hate, pain, and tears
Still, I wouldnt.
It is only by falling that we know what it means to stand
Only by crying, learn the value of a smile
When your enemies stand against you,
Real friends shine true
Diamonds on a beach of glass rocks.
If I could, I would teach you every lesson
Beaten into my bones and engraved in every scar.
But how could you understand
Unless you had scars of your own?
If you have no concept of hot,
How can I warn you away from a burn?
If I could love you always
Be the hand you hold,
When lightning and thunder chase you from sleep
And monsters and skeletons peek
From your closet doors,
If I could cheer your every victory
Comfort you in defeat,
And I will.
