Gripping the ledge with all my strength
My arms aching from holding on.
Asking myself how I got here.
I was on safe ground when I met you
Then our talks moved me along.
I found myself leaving my safe spot
As I grew fonder of you each day.
Soon I was standing next to this ledge
Peering over to see what lies beyond.
I knew that I was in danger
I had allowed myself to get too close.
My feelings for you took over my judgement
And I slipped and just barely held on.
Now here I am no longer willing to fight it
I let go and start the free fall.
Looking to the ground I don't see the safety net
That I had warned you that I would need.
Are you going to allow me to crash?
Or dare I hope you will choose an option that is better?
If so grab me as I fly by
Wrap your arms around me and hold on tight.
Let's fall together.
