Mary Nagy (11-08-1970)
Water washes over me
pushing me further down.
I keep trying to stay afloat
afraid one day I'll drown.
Someday life will get easier
for us, I'm sure it will.
Just now it feels like we are pushing
dead weight up dead-man's hill.
I love to know we're in it
together till the end.
No matter how much stress we have
We'll always be best friends.
My partner, lover, but mostly friend.
You are my everything.
When I am tired and can't stand up
that's when you whisper in my ear...
Thank you for your strength.
