Still Here

some way
I’m still alive
I’m still here today

this should be seen as shocking
I’ve met death a few times
we had a party once
I didn’t keep his name

all those moments
we stayed together
part of me wished it was forever
yet he left like so many others

some how I’m here
some day he’ll return
and take me away
until then, I’ll live
