Our Path

You took me for a run; I fell in love
with everything you gave to me and still
the strength you gave is what I’m thinking of
you gave it as I watched you stride uphill
You taught me how to live when life is hard
I almost died but then I felt you near
I broke some bones; my ankle’s skin is scarred
I feel alone and “god!” I want you here
I’m healing slowly so that I’m complete
I’ll only promise what I know is true
Exhausted. Will you drive me home my friend?
The way we started might be how we end.
