If I were single I would live alone,
Just reading books. If I could live alone
I'd spend each evening at the Starbucks, drink
A coffee, write, and think, "Will I live alone
Without a love?" And I would then go home
To my apartment where I'd live alone.
But since I found you, dear, I read my books
And write -- but I don't have to live alone
To think and work. I'm more myself since I
Embraced you, love, so I don't live alone.
I melt into your arms, your eyes when you
Say, "Troy, with me you'll never live alone."
