All I Had To Lose

Rating: 3.0
You were my first cup of tea after work
You were the shower, washed the sweat and dirt
You were my well-thumbed naughty magazine
You were the newspaper in the morning
You were my birthday, Christmas, and New Year
Yours was the music that I loved to hear
You were a warming, sleepy blanket
Last night’s clothes still lying ’round it
You were my adventure playground
Familiar as my hometown
You were a holiday by the sea
Pizza, wine, and Sicily
You were the only one I’d choose
And you were all I had to lose.

We all fear the loss of the person we love the most, it's human nature and you describe this feeling so well here. Ruthie

Wow, got so caught up in the feel-goodness, that the last line kind of snatched the earth out from under me for a few seconds. It is for this reason, one can never truly possess or be possessed, I think..lovely sad lines, thank you.
