Maira & John :
We were kindred spirits for twenty years, but life is leaving you.
Why must God be so cruel, when you’ve endured all you can do?
I want to hold you in my arms and tell you that you’re not going to die
But precious John, you and I know that it does not do to lie.
Do you remember the times in the meadow, when we sat under our tree?
Or we talked for hours on end, and you poured out your heart to me.
Maira back then we were but children, how fast the years have passed
I always feared that we were over-content and things were too good to last
I feel safe as my head rests on your shoulder and Bonnie enters the room
I watch her tears fall once more and fear that I will be gone so soon
I promise to cling on to life, and exist for as long as I can
Thank you both for completing me. You made me the man I am.
