I fall,
Yet I'm standing.

I die,
Yet I'm breathing.

I sleep,
But my eyes are open.

I scream,
But I laugh.

I cry,
But I smile.

I'm mute,
But I talk.

I'm deaf,
Yet I hear.

I'm paralyzed,
Yet I move.

I've given up,
Yet I go on.

I'm cold,
And it's so warm.

I'm blind,
Yet I see,
You.
And only you.
