the gift is yours to keep

A vow I made:
my heart to keep-
my soul, my love, for you.

No tears, like razors, though
burning my cheeks,
will take this gift from you

I gave it freely;
a gift for life.
so do with it as you will,

But always remember:
if you throw it away-
I can't come back to you.

So dance free spirit,
and howl to the moon!
I'll always run with you:

paw step for paw step,
gait after gait:
watching over you.

A wraith I came,
A wraith I'll leave-
I'll always wait for you.

You're only weakness,
Is your belief:
But I'll always still love you.

I feel the same way, give everything to someone, and you'll always be there. Great imagery. Keep writing

Yeah for sure! I actually wrote this after a break up, because I believe if you give someone everything, what you give them stays with them. As what they give yous stays with you. That way everyone learns and grows as long as its a healthy relationship. Thanks for the comment!
