If i come to you for advice
will you just
in an ethereal embrace?
Will you prop me up
Your lack of negative judgement
Your heart on your sleeve
Your love of my smile
My love of your love
My love of you
You said goodbye too soon
You said goodbye as my brain
turned tail; as my mind
refused logic and clung to fear.
You said hasta luego mi niña
Pero te necesito AHORA.
