Darlin’ take a deep breath and think
The cold sharp steel you hold
Won’t fight the cold and life won't be better
Not when you cut your skin like animal leather.
The scars burn, and will forever stay
But my love for you will never fade away
Grab a cup of tea and sit with me
On our ocean sand covered towels
Here, we will talk for hours.
Darlin’ don’t you see, the beauty you hold
People talk of beauty that you have not been told
Life will take its turns but here I will stay
To tell you of the small things that make a brighter day.
A golden flower dancing in the wind
A good book that gives you a cheshire grin
A deep orange in the fall colored leaves
A kiss from your loved one only you receive
A bad day that you can change with these little things.
A bowl of your favorite food
A day on the beach with sun kissed skin
A lovely time with your sister and kin
A smiling dog who loves you like no other
A hug and kiss from your father or mother.
Your day might look grim
But I know I can make you grin
With these small treasures
That will forever be pleasures.
Darlin’ take a deep breath
And put down that knife you might later regret
For I love you and will hold you
And remind you of what will help you grow and smile
I will be sure to stay a while
I promise these things will make you smile.
You might not believe me for we share the same body
But this is why I know you so fondly
Take a deep breath and love yourself
And remember the things that make you smile
Darlin’ don’t forget I will stay awhile.
