May Day

It’s been a long time coming

But we’re finally okay

We know we deserved this sooner

But we’ll take what we can get


But just as all the pieces seem to fall right into place

The universe conspires against us

And rips them from our hands again


And I know

That it’s getting hard to see

That there’s a life worth living

But we have to keep on fighting this

I live for you

You live for me


You are like a tree in the winter

Stripped bare

Your leaves have long been covered by the snow

And you are still beautiful

A tree doesn’t stop giving air when winters comes


It’s been a long winter, my friend

And I’ll help you make it to spring
