My Diversion

It was sucking the joy out of me
I struggled to keep my sanity
Then you came and brought a new meaning
Now I look forward to each morning

It’s amazing how you made me see
A world beyond each day’s cruelty
A diversion that I badly need
To survive this life that I lead

Yes, it still sucks the joy out of me
But as long as you’re here, I’m with glee
With you, I’m ready to brave this fight
Together, we’ll overcome this plight
