All that time I spent gone, away from you
fighting for something that wasn’t my own
but standing up for something I know,
like my mama taught me to
and while we’re apart you do what’s needed
the epitome of Queen when at the helm
too proud to admit when overwhelmed
I smile and swell when I say, “She did it”
As for me, I was alone but still walking tall
I hit a few things while thinking of you
broke some of me, and lost a few too
disease, death, and twice now a fall
the Comeback Kid, struggle and strife
I made it home, but still feel alone
the limb that was there, I could spare
but not no job, no home, no kids, no wife and
no life
