When I Needed You

If you only knew how much you meant to me
As a child, I would pray for you to save me
But you never came
When you reached for me
I would grasp on to your every moment
But still you never came
I was in pain and reached for you
Through hope and tears, I prayed
You never came
As the years passed I grew to survive on my own
Even though I was alone
You never came
Through the tears and over the years we parted but your end came near
You reached for me and I never came to you
I tried but words could not replace what was never there
I never came
Now it's too late
And as I lay this letter here upon your folded hands
I whisper to you
I'm finally here.
