As long as you breathe, I can't give up
It doesn't seem to matter that stars
Stream down like winter rain or that
Another dog has run away as if
He knows my love may do him in
Should he deign to stay

As long as I know you walk the earth
If not exactly the path you trod
I can't sever the bond connecting us
Nor banish thoughts and feelings
of you from my psyche, or,
I would - as soon as the fates allowed.
