There’s a darkness, spreading.
As far as the eye can see.
You can feel it, I’m not regretting.
Wondering if we should leave.
You don’t owe me, not a dime.
Because there’s things in this world you can’t replace. Like time.
I don’t owe you. And here’s why.
I could leave but I’d rather stay behind.
When we made that promise,
we found compromise within.
And when we closed our eyes to witness,
It was life digging its knife deeper in.
Can I attest to your love?
It saved me when I couldn’t breathe.
Can you show me how much?
When you’d didn’t have a place to be.
Now you’re wondering,
And here’s why.
I could leave, but I chose to stay behind.
