Love

Burden

Let me be your burden

When I have passed away

For you will live the longer

Or so statistics say

Let me be your burden

I don't care what doctors say

Let my strength consume me

Whilst we are here today

Let me be your burden

At the end of days

A photographic memory

That slowly, slowly fades

I don't want to be your burden

Whilst we are making hay

I don't want to have to face up

To my own decay

So let me be your burden

In this secret selfish way

Even though I know I'll haunt you

When you are old and grey

Love
