Last Words

A lifetime ago
I was standing on the edge of a cliff
Staring down at the waves and rocks below
The only things keeping me there
A fleeting thought
A forgotten dream

Then a hand
attached to an arm
attached to you
pulled me away
Away from the edge
Away from the thought
Into the dream

I never thought I'd find myself pulled out of the dream
Back on the cliff
I never thought I'd need someone to pull me back

And I didn't
I turned and walked away on my own

I was the hardest thing I've ever done
It was the scariest thing I've ever done
It was the strongest thing I've ever done

I've chosen to live my life
I've chosen to accept yours
And these are the last words I'll write for you
