I hold no brief for life's grand scheme,
Or what we're meant to be,
But one thing I am certain of,
And that, my friend, is me.
When all else is fading fast,
And love's a memory,
I find support from just one thought,
My friend, I still have me.
And if you pause and think a while,
I'm sure you will agree,
That if you lose all else besides,
You can still say "I have me".
So gaze into your mirror friend,
Some comfort there you'll see;
Familiar eyes will answer yours:
Live on...you still have me!
