different kind of love 

now we have 
a different kind of love 
a love that's taking 
the long road home 
you tell your stories 
stitched together 
in a broken memory of truth 
we listen like we've never 
heard the story before 
do our best to bring you back 
into the moment 
know it won't be long 
until you try to relate 
the next same old song 
your memories are fragile 
tentative 
fused together 
without meaning 
old songs confuse 
and disorder reality 
even we don't know 
what to believe anymore 
what will we be 
when you're no longer here 
as we watch you fade 
into a shadow of you 
what will we be 
daughters 
friends 
carers 
sisters
