If I had to Stare Death in the Eye ~ Kudisha Singh

I held every door open for you,
I would climb every wall you built.
I fixed you up when you fell apart,
I showed the light when,
You were hidden amongst the shadows,
I was the only ship that didn't sink in your seas.
When you took the suitcase,
I took the blame.

When you walked in,
You walked out,
I gave you my wings when yours were broken,
I made the crowds shout your name,
I waited for you in the pouring rain,
Lay your roses on my grave,
One day you too would have to cross the bridge,
I will be waiting for you on the other side
