Can we live in hope

without drowning in expectations

reach for the stars

without losing the inspiration

can a love burn

when the heat is gone

waiting to begin

what was already done

can lovers dream

without having to wake

to ever prove

it was never a mistake

can we pray to breathe

without the need of more

to love with all my heart

without having to ignore

no, I embrace reality

for what it is

and have not love

because of what love is

my life, my hope, my dream

inspiration, and my final breath

can I keep loves memories

without losing all upon my hearts death
