You have never lied to me
You've held me close to you.
I've told you everything to know
You've only said what's true.

I look at you, you melt with me
You're strength shines through your eyes.
You made me see my happiness
Was worth the utmost prize.

I found the courage to leave my life
of sadness, guilt, and pain.
I realized then, to have my dream,
I must jump from the train.

I followed heart, and knew within
I had to for myself.
I knew I had to make a choice
Without you on the shelf.  

And so I did, jump off the edge,
you gave me strength, you see.
I'd hoped to find your opened arms
Instead, I have found me.
