A Piece of me

That 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 wanted to give 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.
And I believe that 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.
