I'm Afraid of Being Replaced

  1. And being forgotten.
  2. I'm scared that I don't matter much to those around me.
  3. Not in an 'I'm worthless' type of way
  4. but in an 'your life doesn't affect mine' kind of way.
  5. I don't understand how you can be in someone's life and then it just be over.
  6. Just like that.
    From one day to the next.
  7. I don't want to be replaced by someone better.
  8. Not because I strive to win
    but because I strive to be the one that you see best.
  9. I don't want to be 'gotten over'
    Even though I know that sounds very selfish.
  10. But don't worry. I understand.
  11. Not everything stays.
    Not everyone stays.
  12. But if there's something I can do to be kept,
    to keep you
  13. I will do it.
