We hang

Each one of us

Every day

We hang

And we hang on


We grasp

As we gasp

yet we grasp

We grasp on


We stand

Even as we shake

We stand

and keep standing


We walk

Even as we talk

We walk

And keep walking on



I cling on

I grasp

I clasp

I run


As you play me

In your eternal arms

I stay
