This Was Your Life


This has been your life
Not mine
For many years

I've bled at your feet
I've born your sins
I've asked for nothing in return
But your love

This has been your life
For as long as I've known it
I nursed you
When I hurt you
I gave you all I could give
Even til the tears were no more

You've slept in my heart
Where I kept you safe from the world
I asked nothing of you
But your love.
