For Now

Written by: Bettie Avery

For Now
 
I am for now doing what I can
 
 
Nobody knowing about my real plan....
 
 
For now I will try to survive....
 
 
Even if nothing inside of me is alive....
 
 
I just keep going and pretend....
 
 
Finally seeing my pain coming to an end....
 
 
Please don’t cry for me....
 
 
I am better off you will see....
 
 
Don’t ever doubt I love you all....
 
 
My mind and soul can’t handle another fall....
 
 
For now I go through life feeling numb....
 
 
I may be slow at times but I’m not dumb....
 
 
I know who really loved me with no conditions....
 
 
And who pulled me through hard situations....
 
 
I want to really thank all of you....
 
 
And say sorry for now what I must do....
