and maybe the only reason
i stay at least a little sane
is because
of you.
you drag some colors across the sky
or put out a breeze
or a tune or a song
that makes me happy i'm alive.
i can feel you there.
i can tell you're there.

and i can't thank you enough,
although i try,
that you keep me going.
you don't let me give up on life
and you shoudnt.
cause i know there's so much left for me to do in this world.
and i want to be able to do
all those things.

firstly, i love the lowercase letters, i LOVE lowercasing, since it's such a lovely style in my opinion. in terms of the actual poem, it's a very soft, yet very revealing sort of poem. if it's about a boy/girl then i'm going to have to say, i completely get you honey.
