Because of You

Before you, 

I was dragged along like a chain, 

cutting along every vein, 

not knowing what it would do to my brain.

Before you, 

I felt like I was the weight of a crane, 

with such fain,

I let it keep me sane.  

Before you,

this was indeed my deepest,

and my loudest cheep.

But now, 

because of you, 

I don't feel like a grain.

Because of you, 

I'm not going down the drain,

I am not longer a little grain. 

Because of you, 

I know that every one of my gains, 

will not just be another of one your stains

when we are both walking around with our canes.
