"You gotta be..."
You've gotta be you.
I can talk to you about my life.
I can be there if things go wrong.
You have to do the work of life.
You're up to the challenge.
I'm not leaving you.
I'm saying you've always got a place at my table.
Now go live your life.
It's will be okay.
If it's not?
Then come sit besides me.
I'll hug your neck.
I'll give you a place to heal.
I'll kick you back out into the world when you're better.
I'll tell you,
"You ll be okay."
"You aren't alone."
