Don’t quit just yet, I’ll be lost forever,
You are my saving grace.
Come save me, won’t you come save me?

p

You are the oxygen that I breathe.
Put to use by the lungs you made.
You are the reason my heart beats.
And you are the reason that it breaks.

p

And even promising words are not enough promise for you.
You need to feel the beat of life within her chest, so you can feel it again too.

p

You’ll be the smoke in my mouth, I’ll suck you in, I’ll push you out, and then you’ll disappear and turn into something else.

p

The strangest part is what’s gained from loss,
And to lose what’s lost,
And to gain what’s not.
But you took me in with open arms,
Because only time and love move this world along.
