In the deepest of your hearts I live
Buried under forgotten fears.
There is nothing left for me to give,
For I have given, over the years.
Slowly, as you have grown,
I'm falling, like an autumn leaf;
But I live in all things you call your own
Gains, losses, joy and grief.
Hidden, forgotten, slowly fading-
An empty vessel of past hopes;
Like your dreams lost in trading,
In grappling with life's harsh ropes…
Yet, with you, I'll always be
Never heard, never seen….
Where are you without me?
For I am you, and always have been…
