One more person to avoid living without,
one more smile adorns my mouth.
One more reason to never give up,
one more memory to make the tears stop.
One more occasion to dance and sing,
and yet another where piercing screams ring.
One more lesson, albeit unpleasant, learnt;
one more message, via a gaze, sent.
One more day with a start and an end,
one more opportunity to not take offence.
One more sigh from a heavy heart,
one sentence that can tear you apart.
One more line, already been crossed,
one more bond bites the dust.
One more chance to set things aright,
one more weighty err, turned light.
