if i were
to hand you my heart
still tender and throbbing
would you
cherish it? 

if i were
to shed a tear
would you lift your hand
to the wetness upon my face
and wipe
away the pain? 

if i were
to soar into the sky
past the heavens and into infinity
would you
pack your bags
and join me? 

if i were
to die today
would your heart
feel empty
without me?
