The Silver Lining

Image

I tried my best to make it work 
Holding on so tight lest it may slip away any moment 
It nearly slipped away one time 
I saved us 
Not too long after that 
You pushed me away 
I lost my grip I had worked on for so long 
I was expected to fall 
Who would ever guess that your push 
Sent me higher and higher 
Doing better and better 
I look back down 
With a calm smile with pride 
You, tiny you, look up at me, amazed 
And I’m still rising
