Only because of you

Only because of you...

Hopes closed in,apocalypse seemed better
waves of remorse swept me to the depths,
darkness as pitch black night  ossified me.
My sorrows ,my blues and me .I..

Lost,a loser.. I was tagged ceremoniously
dumped  upon mind's  dusty attic...Then,
a slight wiggle you did, a soft kick 
within my womb my being read .

My seed within me feeding on my loser life's sap
from vessels that I once longed to slit,
roused my head away from the vices of the world
urged my lung to breathe and  brace, a new beginning.

You burgeoned me ,filled me up,my baby 
drained my blues off, drop by drop,my baby grew
took my hand and led me on to meadows green
You and I , our chord of love unsevered.

blurred visions .frumpy fears, weary thoughts
all chased  away by years of  magical love
A shining gem ,my darling daughter, says to me
'Take care,I need you more than you need yourself!'
