Don't let go of the roots that you hold on to,
You are the pillar in this little world on mine.
You are my love, my strength in everything I do,
You make sense of madness, making it all fine.
I've been in love with you, from the moment that we met,
I used you as my pillar and took all that I could get.
And now that you're sick, and may not be around for long,
I feel so lonely, so helpless and everything I did seems so wrong.
But hold on darling, just hold on to me,
And selfishly I beg, that you fight this illness and live for me.
Not for me to use you, but let me now be there for you,
I want you to live, so that I can love you.
So will you let me love, and make you smile like I use to,
Will you let me cook you a meal, and mess up the kitchen like I use to.
Can we kiss always, in the bedrooms, corridor and in the balcony to,
Will you be strong and get well, for me to love you.
