Without you my life lost meaning, my strength withered away in quicksand
I fought to survive as my love perished and my inner demons took a stand.

My voice became muffled, my heart turned cold…..
Everything I loved disappeared as it once was foretold

Years have passed and much has changed
I saved myself of hurt in a simple exchange.

I forgot my pain, ignored my mistakes, and erased my past
It was the only thing manageable to stay adrift as the time surpassed

Now your presence has given me hope
That I no longer have to hide in order to cope

There is a new truth in my life, one that I never again wish to forget
I only pray that you stay by my side for every new sunset.
