Choices

I am but one person
I can not travel two trails at once
I can no more do all I desire
than split myself in two
and hurl myself down both paths
I can not sleep in a bed
and hope to keep it made
I can not read a book
while keeping total darkness
Nor can I hold the candle of love
while facing the winds of destiny
For what fills the heart
must also numb the mind
and what binds us together
will forever hold me back
But these are just choices my love
Choices that are made everyday
To play or to work
To dream or to wake
To love or to hate
To breathe or to die
We will make our choices love
We will cast our die
But know now, no matter what
that you and you alone
were the one to steal my heart
And should destiny call me away
you will be my greatest sacrifice
