Loving Others

Somewhere I’m loving you today
Somehow I’m loving you today
Seems almost impossible to be
Because how can I love you
When I struggle to love me?
They say nobody can love you
Until you love yourself
Seems I proved that wrong
‘Cause I know you love me
Even when I’m not liking much
I know how lucky I am
I don’t have cause to complain
Yet I still feel this thorny pain
Outsiders looking in don’t understand
Probably think that I’m ungrateful
I have so much more than they do
A family, husband and love
Yet I feel barbs in my heart
Buried deep and not letting go
Somewhere I’m loving you today
Somehow I’m loving you today
I seem to have a lot of love for others
But I can’t find enough for myself
