You're the reason I am
The reason the clouds no longer cover the sun inside me
The reason the frost doesn't bite
The reason every nerve in my body is alive with sensation

Don't leave

You're the reason for the change of season in my soul
The reason winter feels as much like summer as summer does
The reason the trees in the grove of my mind still stand even after their leaves have fallen
The reason the solstice in my eyes eclipses my troubled thoughts

So please
Don't leave

You're the reason we are
The reason you can chip away my walls like the bark of a Grand Oak
The reason for the no longer desolate look in the windows to my soul
The reason for my every painful exchange of breath

So I'm sorry
So sorry
That I have to leave
