AR, you make me tear up :’)


I’m ready

For flowers I asked
And a forest you grew
For water I asked
And elixir you brewed
For what should I ask
That you become mine too ?

In the jungle, my path I lost 
And a way, you sent to me
In the darkness my sight I lost, 
And the sun, you sent to me
What should I lose
That will send you to me ?

In the chasm, I was sinking
When to the peak, you raised me
In the floods, I was drowning
When to the shore, you brought me
Tell me, what should I do 
That will somehow take me to you ?
