The Need

I dont need a promise of sunrise or sunset.

I dont need a promise of food.

I dont even need the promise of rescue. 

Beacue while im stranded here on this isalnd all I need is the thought of you.

For what reason?

It is you who I hold in my heart.

It is you who takes up my mind.

And for that reason 

Just the thoguht of you is enough to keep my strong, to keep me satisfied

The thoguht of you is enough to keep my heart steadily beating and my body alive.

While im stranded on this isalnd I am calm as the waves at dusk, becasue i know if I am to die in this very moment

I will die serne, as I think of you.
