For my friend

We could hold each other tight until forever comes
For your love is safe and warm.
And I wrap my arms around you, press my face into your hair
I see the beauty I could have.

But the days we have together are already numbered
I see you count them with despair.
And the game we play together will not help us then
The lies our bodies tell will be found out.

I wish that I could hold you til forever comes
But I know that I will not.
For I believe that love is in my future still
And it will not be warm and safe.

I long to burn with passion in my lover
