I thought I’d die if I didn’t have you
And I very nearly threw away my life when you asked me to
Just about but not quite
Because in the last minute, some shred of something pulled me back
What was it?
Self-preservation? Self-respect? Dignity? Sensibility?
You called it selfishness
I’m so glad that I’m a selfish person
It saved my life
That I loved me more than I loved you.
