Lost within the past and present longing,
I meet you and see my future calling.
Filled with death and desire,
You teach me to conspire.
I trust in you and only you.
You reach within my mind,
And release this present blind;
Opening the gates within me has nothing but reassured me.
You are my teacher, my friend,
And I hope we stay in touch till the very end.
