WILL YOU……….

Will you die for me……

No

Would you live for me

Sometimes dying for someone is not the sacrifice

It’s being alive

It’s being the anchor that keeps them grounded

The stitch that holds all the pieces together

Staying by their side as they run the race

Calling to them to keep going

When they’re about to give up

When their knees lock together and they stumble

It’s in looking down at the crumpled mess they  are

Without judgment or insults

It’s in the offered hand of help

And the constant mutters of “Get up”s

Dying means they loose you

Living means they have you

Despite whatever might be currently going wrong

It means you can be the glue that holds every part together

The good and  the bad

And no matter what’s happening

You are their gravity

So

Will you live for me?

Will you let me live for you?

The  savior asks?

Have Faith
