No Lost Causes HereI am no lost cause -and by the time you realize my worthIt may be too late -To late for you...to late for me...And far too late for hope.
Bitter EndTwo halves coming togetherto change the world for the betterAll this wickedness caused by doubtthe circle dissected by those who who didn't countShattered and strewn is love and hopeby those who could not copeRefusing to abide by their stationset to destroy a fated relation.
To Truly LiveI cannot make you love me -I wouldn't begin to try.All these words – All these years -I am merely following my heart.Attempting to maintain a steady course,Led by my inner-star,And a sense of 'True North,'Believing there is a reason for the journey.Even if the destination is only death,As long as I enjoy the adventure each day brings,Then the best of what it means to truly live,is already an accomplished feat.Now, whether my head is full of clouds,and my feet never touch the ground,So long as my ship tarries onward,over seas of calm or storm,As the captain of my existence,The sirens and Poseidon himself shall find me worthyMayhaps I'll not be one for the 'landlubbers' to praise -I am a water sign, regardless of their derision.Besides, their ways have hardly ever matched my own,And if they attempted my path, they would surely drown.
Pointing Out One's Flaws Is Not...I will point out my flaws -not to put myself downRather, so that you may love me 'ugly'and cannot be surprisedwhen some flaw of minerears its ugly head -Love must be for what is wrongas well as the illusion of right.
BraveryYou make me brave -you make me want to do better -be better... try harderWithout you there is no light in me,I have only directionless abandon,Nothing to hope for -There is no reason at all..that I should live... or exist at allEvery word, every breath is wasted.
November 23Happy birthday to you dearest of sirsI hold my breath for wishes found at the exhalation of your breathWhen all the candles go out and another year beginsHow did we ever make it this far when we were so certain we be dead long before this dayBut here we are: You there. Me here.So much love between It's what got us to this point, you know? And I hope it takes us much further.
