So we're dying

"You're killing me," he said,
"with silence
and sullen eyes full of meaning.
I can hear the silent screams

"You're killing me," he said,
"with inaction.
You move in slow motion
and the impact crushes
the bones.

"You're killing me," he said,
"with neglect.
Your eyes they look through me,
your hands barely touch me...
I am cold."

"You're killing me," he said,
"with yourself:
taking me down like kamikaze,
hitting me with not-so-friendly fire.
So we're dying."

You promised to be with me forever
And to love me until time ends
But I want to ask
One more thing of you
Promise me your tenderness

When everyone is running so fast
And I feel like I've been left behind
Promise me you'll shorten your stride dear
And walk this road with me

When I'm carried forward by a wave dear
And I'm teetering at it's peak
Promise me you'll ride it with me
Until the horizon reappears

When I have a question to ask
When I have a story to tell
When I have a fear to express my dear
Promise me you will always hear me

When I hatch a brand new scheme
Or another one of my inventions
When my confidence hangs by a thread dear
Promise me you'll always believe

When I'm clearly in the wrong
And I'm taking my time to admit it
Call me out, my dear, by all means
Though it hurts I'll know you still love me

I promise to be with you forever
I promise to love you till time ends
And one more thing
I vow my dear
I promise you my tenderness
