YOU are the Reason

The time we spent together
are the times I have valued my life

you are the river that runs
through me whenever I feel the void

you are the air that inflates me
whenever I feel like I’m giving up

you are the melody that plays
which accompanies me through the journey

I was once alone in the dark
you took my hand and showed me the world

made yourself as the beacon
so I could go on and sail again

I would have drowned
but you have revived my esteem

now that you are with me
I know there’s no battle I couldn’t win

time I have wasted alone
with you time of contentment I have found

so be beside me on this quest
for this is not mine alone to travel

let us reach for the heavens
hand in hand, we’ll realize our dreams
