We. You and I


World
One word
Five letters
I am trying to make sense of it

Life
One word
Four letters
And I am not ready to quit yet

You
One word
Three letters
Stay, you are the one I love the most

Me
One word
Two letters
Please wait, don’t just leave me yet

I
One word
One letter
I know, I am not perfect

Do you know?
Life might make the world bleed
The world might make life greed
But still together they form the universe
Do you realize?
Life cannot be without the world
The world cannot be without life

You see
You might make me cry
I might make you suffer
But still together we can form “us”
Do you realize?
I cannot be without you
You cannot be without me
Can’t we just be “we”?
You and I
And ignore all the bullshit around “we”

"Heaven"—is what I cannot reach!
The Apple on the Tree—
Provided it do hopeless—hang—
That—"Heaven" is—to Me!
