Just the two of us
Working against the world

With fists held high
Against an outside force

The struggles
We’ve endured
The pain
The hurt
Nothing can come close
To losing the one I love the most
Losing the one

Without hesitation
Give my heart to
Beating like a drum

And just when
My ocean blue eyes shut
They forcibly open
Again
A moment’s reaction

I am not giving up
