Thank you for the sip of water
For the precious draught of air
For the little dregs of kindness
Which, in my life, are rare
I thought I was designed
To survive and not to live
But I stole some sanguine moments
You were good enough to give
Of course I’m nothing to you
And that’s just how it should be
And it matters not one whit
That you are everything to me
It’s correct that you would love her
It’s right that she should claim your heart
The both of you are kindred spirits
Whereas I’m a world apart
Still I’ll cherish those sweet moments
Though they were precious few
I’ll cling tightly to my memories
And think gratefully of you.
