I Cannot Lose You

I am standing at a crossroad,

The options for me are limited,

One of the three directions

I must choose.

From where I have reached,

It is the fourth,

It is a compulsion,

Where you are

Nobody complains.

It is already getting dark,

Your window I cannot find,

You have not lit the lamp,

You have not shown me the way,

I cannot reach you thus.

The left or the right,

The opposing directions,

Confuse me

And there is no light ahead,

Which way to go?

I can hear you breathe,

I can feel your pulse,

You are my shadow chasing me.

You cannot keep open a window,

You cannot light a lamp,

Then you may not be;

I cannot see you,

I must stay where I am,

I cannot lose you.
