Selfless

 

There’s nothing left of me.

I gave it all for you.

Skin, hair and fingernails,

organs and muscle,

bones, nerves, brain;

I gave everything.

All of my yesterdays,

even this moment

and this space.

Every second

I had to my name.

I have nothing more

to give away.

Soul and song,

a blissful serenade

turned mournful

by the end of the day.

Only my ghost remains

to haunt this empty place.

It never ceases to amaze

what a soul

will do for love.

Wish I had it all

back again,

just so I could give it up

for you.
