I crawled into the pyre with you
that day I committed you to flames
is it any surprise, then, that heat
is something I only know by name?
I walked with you by your side
each faltering step was ours
can you help me, then, if I
know not which footprint is yours?
I was there to lend you life
when each breath was an onslaught
through pain I heard your love call out
can you shout, then, that I hear not your voice?
I was silent when they took me away
I held my peace when they said I was wrong
can you, then, hold against it me
when I say I live. Only for your love?
There's more where that came from!
