    The Simplest Things
    By darthjim


    For all you are,
    for all we possess.
    For friends near and far,
    for rescue from loneliness.

    For sunshine and shadow,
    for fields of gold.
    For the ancient and callow,
    for the hot and the cold.

    For a stolen glance,
    for a final reprieve.
    For a first slow dance,
    for refusing to leave.

    For all that's gone,
    for the edge of the knife.
    For a chance, just one,
    to live this life.
