With you

You said to turn and to walk away

but with you my love I’m here to stay

to hold you close and to touch your cheek

to catch you when your legs grow weak


You said to stop and to close my eyes

But you gave up after many tries

my eyes stayed open to be bound by yours

inside our minds we are raging wars


You said to leave you and save myself

but you’re worth more than life itself

I would rather live a day with you 

then live to be one hundred and two.
