The Reason

The reason I'm living The reason I'm dying The reason I'm happy The reason I'm lying I'm alive to nurture I'm alive to give I'm alive to comfort I'm alive just to live I'm dying from sadness I'm dying from sores I'm dying from illness I'm dying for more I'm happy to rise I'm happy to fall I'm happy when he is I'm not happy at all I'm lying to protect I'm lying on a whim I'm lying to forget I'm lying just for him

    The power of love...love, in itself, is all the reason one needs. Strong lines. Well done.
