The one thing I could never live without...
Is my heart. I am a man who does not
Wear his heart on his sleeve for fear
That it might get hurt. So I hold it close to
My chest and protect it like a newborn baby
Afraid and seeking nothing more than a soft embrace
And care. Emotions, thoughts, words; none of these
Would be possible without my guardian and mentor.
My heart has taught me all that I know.
How to love, how to fear, and how to learn.
The day when my heart decays is when
I lose my sense of self, and I fear the day
That I experience something so terrible
That it crumbles to dust.
