- What Matters
tick. tock. tick. tock. tick. tock.
time is slipping away from you (us).
iloveyouimisscomeover: all the words I'll lose.
i'm fighting so hard to keep you.
won't give up. not on you.
help me, will you? please, please.
death is forever. life is not.
choose air. choose sun. choose me.
we can watch Across the Universe,
sing along to "Hey Jude" (loudly).
we fall together, like puzzle pieces.
you: overachieving, overexaggerating. me: cynical, misanthropic.
you: moody, chaotic. me: energetic, unworried.
both halves of me love you.
you really do deserve it (really).
they say "nothing gold can stay."
but what does robert frost know?
we're always golden (always, always, always).
you're sunshine; your eyes say so.
you're glitter spilled across the sky.
some people might call it "stars";
i call it essence of you.
we keep running in small circles.
and, still, i won't give up.
(never give up, not on you).
think of November, cold football games.
think of Saturdays, the "let's-not-move-until-noon" days.
think of California, your favorite place.
will you remember when you're gone?
don't let go, T.McG (our language).
you still (always) have options (me).
i got lost; you found me.
you're lost; give me a map.
my laugh is always your shelter.
your smile will always be home.
