RememberWith your words only to sustain me
I move through this world.
Your voice is fading, your face a memory out of reach.
No food to fuel this body, no sleep to ease the mind;
I move on with only words, and even they begin to blur.
I must be too strong for tears,
I must not stumble or fall;
Without rest I would not stop,
Starved for strength, I could not rise.
Somewhere before me is a reason to go on,
Somewhere ahead is the day I will remember your face again,
When your words will return my strength to me,
When your voice will put my mind at ease.
I must not forget.
I must not drop this heart cradled in my hands
But it's so difficult, just to remember why I hold it,
To keep these eyes open, to remember what I'm searching for.
There is no more strength, my last step fails;
With the slightest of sighs, I know I will fall
Right off the world, and into your arms.
