I have a new label to wear.
One thrust upon me that I did not want to bare.
This new label reads SURVIVOR and seems to weigh a ton.
Funny thing is that I sure don't feel like one.
People don't understand and they foolishly think that it is rare.
They try to ignore it and act like they just don't care.
I ache to share my memories of my lost loved one.
To speak their name and tell of things that we had done.
But nobody wants to listen and nobody ever asks.
I refuse to forget and that is my task.
Because I am a SURVIVOR you see.
I have no choice in how it must be.
