Verse me your Sustenance



The sustenance of life
your life, ours
given one time around
what's your plight, desire

lend to me yours
as I shall mine

hold back not
to me your devine

the sustenance of life
be it yours or mine
lend to oneanother
yet not be defined

Lend me your verse
and I'll lend you mine

Okay... but remember... you asked for it! I have to admit I was unprepared and had to do some research (and changed it to my liking.) but I could not resist the challenge!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
You taught me how to see you by
The way that you saw me;
And by your unseen sustenance,
To see what you could see.
You gave to me through who you were
The gift of what I am.
Your pride in me is now my pride;
Your faith, my caravan.

Your life does not conclude with death,
Nor will it end with mine,
For all the lives I touch, you touch,
And so on through all time.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
(I'm afraid to hit "send"!)
