THE SELFLESS BALLERINA

 

 

 

I remember how I was, before we met that day

Wandering, staggering, stressed out in every way

Obligations of my age, were biting at my sight

Wistful ways of thought, were lost within that fight

So she tied a rope to me

And she held it in her hand

Dream on

She said

Dream on

I will be here when you land

 

She shouldered all my doubt, she adopted all my needs

She carved my wishful route, right through those blinding weeds

She took away my fears, and embraced them as her own

Feel safe

She said

Feel free

You will never be alone

 

If that rope should ever fail, my eyes would shut and rust

I’d tumble from the clouds, and die and fade to dust

I love her more than life, she is everything to me

Thank you

Amy

Thank you

For all the things I see
