I left my home to follow you
and stayed although you tried to make me go.
And as we traveled far and wide
I always prayed you'd keep me by your side.
Despite your best intentions
we became friends,
inseparable, bound together by trust
Anyone can see your strength.
It is unmistakable; in the way you stand,
the way you walk, the way you move.
Only I can see your heart -
in the bright full smile you give so rarely,
in the affectionate glance
you send my way.
And only I can know your soul.
I feel it softly brushing against my own.
You gave yourself to me completely;
I had no choice
but to join my soul to yours.
I cannot live without you now.
