...and the circuits run dry

this was written in 2002 and edited over the last few weeks. 

i began to feel it
    the feeling you felt
the waters ran flush
    the life giving sources

you never understood your pain
   i wanted to be your shoulder
cry on this night till
   we see the light together

i started to own it
   the moment you needed
clicks and beeps of time
   counting down your minutes

you could always tell me
    i am here forever, you rock
hold this pain in me, release
    clean the circuits, iron the wrinkles

i have never forgotten
   how you grew stronger
and the circuits run dry
   you found your strength

at long last, without me
   i couldn't be more happy
