As Long as I Can

This feeling of helplessness
As I lay in a pencil line on the floor
It’s so pitiful…

In a twisted way I’m happy
I’m alive and so are the people I love

And although I’m in pain
Although I am sick
I’m happy…

I can still look up at the sky and say I’m living…
I can still hold my loved ones and tell them
That I do indeed love them…
I can still cry…
I can still feel…
I can still breathe…

And as they ask how long it will last
I sit and listen then say I don’t care…
As long as I am able to live I will live…
As long as I am able to feel I will feel…
As long as I am able to love I will most certainly love…
