I Need You

Wherever I am

Wherever you'll be

I'd die twenty times

To have you here with me

Every joke, every laugh

Consumed by our breath

Is swallowed in time

And frightened to death

The thought of you gone

Scares me too much

You are my very world

I exist in your clutch

I'd rather you killed me

Than to die alone

At least I'd see your eyes

In final seconds known.

But I need you,

As much as the air.

Don't make me think without you

I don't have a life to spare.

So many feelings hidden inside

I'm going insane—around--I can't stop

The beauty of you softens my heart

And to quit loving that? I cannot.
