I'll Help You Find Your Missing Shoe

by Anonymous

Because there’s no difference in protecting those you love from feeling blue And finding a reason to live for yourself

I've realised that most of the time in life you have to do things you don’t want to do

You have to get out of bed and find your missing shoe

Put it on and go to the shop with your sister

She’s moving out next year, and you’re going to miss her

You have to eat your tea, if your mum's been making it all evening

Then wash the dishes for her, until they’re gleaming

Most of the time in life you have to do things you don’t want to do

Because one day you’ll realise that it isn’t all about you

You’re the most important person in your own life, of course

But you need to understand that people speak in morse

You might think they don’t care but it’s in the things they do

It’s in them helping you finding your missing shoe

Care can be found when someone rests their head on your shoulder

Or in a good luck message when you do something bolder

People who don’t love you don’t offer you their coat

Or tell you how they love that poem you wrote

And that’s why sometimes it is okay to live for people who aren’t you

Because there’s no difference in protecting those you love from feeling blue

And finding a reason to live for yourself

Valuing others mental health

If they’re important enough to you they become part of who you are

And that’s why you shouldn’t ever make yourself too far

Because gone forever is much too distant

And that’s why sometimes you have to do things you feel like you can’t
