A Little Longer

I’m still here
I walk these halls
A thousand times
For a glimpse of you
I watch
Feel you dream of me
Through restless nights
I drop pieces of myself
Like breadcrumbs
Hoping you’ll find
Your way back
As you light a candle
To put in the window
It’s true
We’re never really gone
Can you feel me
Your resting eyes
Now, hold no secrets
As the last of it
Trails from your pillow
Soft and forgiving
My heart still breaks
Every time
I look at you
I could spare us both
But cannot
Walk away, I remain
By your side
For another day
So I can steal
One more lifetime
With you
