A Piece of me

The day that you and I 
lay on the edge
of the earth
holding hands,

I left a piece of me
that I intended not to come back for.

It was a small piece of the part of me
that loves you most,
that loves you the hardest.

I left it there
for the wind to take
and give back to the sea.

I gave it back to the earth,
to the world,
to try and save it,
to try and heal it.

I believe our love is that powerful.
I believe it's that big.
And I believe it will last forever.
long after we've tired of these bodies
and left.
After we come back to relive it,
and leave this world again
a thousand times.

Long after the earth gives itself back to the sea.
