Dear leaden soul

by Lady Eve
(Port Elizabeth)

Dear leaden soul,

If I was your star;
Then you were my sky.
If I was your answer;
Then you were my why.

If I was your flower;
Then you were my tree
If I was your river;
Then you were my sea
I always loved you more,
Then you did me.

I will trade
My soul : for your wishes
My eyes : for your smile
My breath : for your whisper
My skin : for your touch

My hands : for your embrace
My feet : for your presence
And if that is still not enough,
I will give up my life,
Just to see her through.

What to do?
What to do?
Every steps they took,
They always lead each other's way
But now they are terrified to face it on their own.
