i'll be beside you, when the sun goes down,
when the sun sets,
when the sun sinks,
while you stand guard, so that i can sleep,
so that i can rest,
so that i can dream,
there's a picture of you in my will, while i twitch,
while i turn,
while i stir,
you'll wake me to make sure that i'm fine, with your voice,
with your grace,
with your chords,
i beg for you to believe me, despite cold hands,




despite rising breath,





despite streams of tears,
don't worry about such helpless things, when my eyes are closed,




when i see new things,





when you are blind,
instead, bind my arms and hold me still, so that i don't shiver,




so that i don't quiver,





so that i don't tremble,
and hunch a little closer, so that you can hear me,




so that i can tell you,





so that you can translate,
and lie still with me in agreement, so that I know that,




so that I am conscious that,





so that I have oath that,

you'll be beside me, when the sun comes up,




when the sun rises,





when the sun sails.

The author's comments:
I don't have much to say about the piece, I wrote it for someone who means the world to me, and who I constantly hurt because I have a difficult time trying to explain what runs through my mind to them. I suppose you could consider it more of an explanation.
