Regular instillings of compliments kill me
Another month another year
That that's all I have left
Has become my greatest fear.
Everything gets scarier the more that I grasp
Holding on to nothing was such an easy task
Now I'm burrowed so deeply within my lover's heart
That my death would tear her entire world apart
That life goes on and I'll never get to see
The promises my children's faces made to me
That I'll never see their lives ever truly start
Their unwept tears haunt me in the dark.
I should appreciate what I have instead
But I'm always aware of the sword of Damocles hovering overhead
Love is life's greatest twist,
The more you have, the more you fear it will be missed.
