    You have been my life
    the spirit within me
    the marrow in my bone

    you have saved me
    when nobody else could
    you helped me find home

    my mind broke
    you saw it happen
    and watched in silence

    you had seen it before
    your own children
    you fought in defiance

    you loved me
    cared for me
    gave me my heart

    helped spark this connection
    my love for animals
    you gave me a start

    yet later you hurt me
    did you mean it?
    for my spirit was bruised

    I guess my biggest fear
    held deep within
    was that what you said was true

    you are sick now
    we fear for life
    but, you I cannot lose

    for if you are gone
    my spark will burn out
    my life will have been lost, too
