Sometimes being human is a curse. Being weak, fragile, tired, depressed... I guess I really am human.

I need you


I need you.

I'm sorry that you do.


The only thing I saw too late,

was a cruel joke made by fate.


I thought of writing you sooner

I thought I could prevent any rumor


So listen to me if you can

I wanted to be at your side


But it was a choice we both made-

I decided to wait until all was set in shade

You decided to reveal what was about to fade


At the end we both went far away.

And I wanted to stay.


Why now? I wonder... to call you have another,

and unlike me, also a mother.


Still you asked for me,

and what I did was be too late to see.


If you still need me call again.

I promise it won't be in vain


I don't want to lose you.

I don't want my fears to come true.


But I fear I'm already too late again.

My exhaustion being the bane.


So I sit here, isolated, close to weeping.

Not daring to eat or go sleeping.


Since I fear to miss your call again.

And as I was wondering if I'll stay sane...


Was when I realized what I do.

I need you.
