You’re not allowed to leave this time
Not even when the sun is gone and the shadows of winter begin to deepen
Taking hostage of the rugged landscape that is my heart,
Not even when I look into the mirror and find all these reasons why
I do not deserve this simple happiness that you grant me anew
Each morning as I raise my unruly heart from your silken embrace.
Remember your deal with me,
Remember your promise.
Dark days are gathering in the distance
And I’ll need you more than ever
(I need you now more than ever)
And I cannot exist without the guarantee that you will never leave my side
I will not.
