In Case Tomorrow Never Comes

By John SwanPublished 4 months ago 1 min read

I used to think

It was best to keep everything in

Keep the walls up high

Protect yourself at all costs

Don't let the rest of the world

Know what's really inside

But is that really life

A life worth living

Or is it just a sheltered existence

Where you never know how much is out there

Then you came along

And changed it all

My walls started to thin

And we're no longer so tall

Each time my walls shrank

Yours grew thicker and taller

But I just can't keep it in

I have to share exactly what's inside

To leave the words unspoken

Does no one any good

So I'll share how I feel

And hope you still call me a friend

Because in the end

I want you to know what's real

Just in case tomorrow never comes
