"One day, your life will flash before your eyes; make sure it's worth watching."

I want you to keep me in your memories wherever you may go
I want to be a photograph; your mind is the camera, your eyes the shutter
Remember my voice as your favorite song on your iPod
Press replay on the good times, and make the melody last forever

Keep me as your silent prayer and hope for me every night
I want to be a constant ringing in your head, the phone that’s never picked up
The only light shining from the end of the dark, gloomy cave you live in,
Reach for me, and even when it seems I’m moving away, don’t give up

Yell my name until all we hear are the echoes of our voices on the walls
Say it again, and again, and again, those beautiful words; tell me you need me
Promise that you’ll keep me as a prisoner in your tall tower
No matter how hard I try to escape from the chains, don’t set me free.

Don’t let me leave, or lose faith, for if a seed
Is taken care of, it may grow into a beautiful rose
Or an evergreen tree, lasting longer than the sands of time
As long as you don’t cut it down, for then the extents of what it’s life could be, we’ll never know

I thought i'd try writing a piece that's a bit deeper in meaning than my usual work
