From the time that I was young,
I realized I had someone like you.
Someone who is strong in every way.
And over the past few years,
I've been trying to figure out a way to thank you for everything.

This is for you.

This is for everything you've made.
For the nights you cried yourself to sleep,
For the days where you wanted to give up.
Yet you still pushed through for us.

Hold fast,
and long live,
To the point of restoration.
Hold fast,
and long live.

Welts calloused over with the blood of the mother;
A sacrificial love found nowhere else in the world.

And I know for a fact that I
Wouldn't be who I am today without you.
Without your drive to move on,
I would be nothing.

And all I ever wanted to see was you to smile.

And when your days are dark,
We'll each light a candle,
Bringing back the light

Bring back the light.

You will never know,
You will never understand how much you mean to me.
