Body Part

I need you to be
like I need
my eyes to see
my lungs to breathe
my heart to beat
my brain to think
you are a part of me

I need you to be
the only aroma
that my lungs can breathe

Just like I need you to be
the only beauty
that mine eyes can see

cause my mind needs to think
you are a part of me

If not your beauty
mine eyes do see
why open my eyes from sleep

if not unto you
this song I sing
why draw breath and breathe

if not for you
this heart does beat
just open these veins to bleed

cause my mind needs to think
you are a part of me
a part that I
cannot do without
you

(Editor Note: The person I wrote this for isn’t in my life anymore. But when you feel this way, it’s really hard to move on. With that note in mind, understand this is an elaborate set of lyrics, in which I have a very impressive song composed in my head that, well… no one else in the world will ever hear how very beautiful it is. When it plays in my head, all the way through… I get goose bumps.)
