So many people use the phrase
"I would die for you"
But I couldn't imagine what you'd do
If I died for you

I would much rather live
Live to protect you
Live to see you smile
Live to be held in your arms

I will live

Even if I end up in a hospital bed
And the doctor tells me there is no chance
I will defy the odds

Even if all hope is gone
No matter how bad I want to give up
No matter how sweet death would feel
No matter how close to the edge I am

I will always be here for you
Protecting you
Smiling with you
Holding you
And being held

I will live
I think this is appropriate for the time...

I want to say, yes zij even if you'd seem impossible to live life with an armful even if you feel from it is not everything what man wants, but must want and not give up, life is beautiful and if not worthless

Living for someone is SO much better than dying for them. Seriously. Why would you let yourself die for them and make them feel terrible because you're gone?

You have no idea how long it took for me to realize that lol.
