With This

With this photo of you I’ll hold on to;
Memories of your youth I once knew
Helpless like weeds, you’ve taken over my health
And I wait for water to keep me breathing,
I see your roots getting thicker

With this photo of you I’ll hold on to;
Memories of laughter before you knew what was funny,
Hopeless like fire, you’ve taken over my health
And I wait for water to drown me,
I see your lungs getting air

With this photo of you I’ll hold on to;
Memories of tears before you knew what was happening
Fearful like men of ghosts, you’ve taken over my health
And I wait for safety to find me,
I see your eyes closing again

In our last goodbyes we held on like the bridge was just our launchpad
And we felt like concrete,
To the shores we thank for holding us again
And to the sand for bringing us in
