I Don’t Want to be Strong Tonight

Thank you for the offer

But I’ll have to refuse

Company might be better

But I need time to process the news.

So instead of being

Part of the crowd

I’ll sit alone in the quiet

And tears will be allowed.

I don’t want to fake it.

I don’t want to be strong tonight.

Tomorrow I’ll make it.

But for now, it’s not all right.

I lived and I loved so for now

Make no mistake

I’m thankful for the hurt

And I’m grateful for the ache.

Tomorrow is a new day

Filled with hope and light

And I will be okay but

I don’t want to be strong tonight.

  1. Thanks. I wrote it in the moment and as you can probably tell, didn’t edit it. So, I wasn’t sure if it made any sense.
