Low Expectations

I’ve fought for a lot of things
Things I’m proud of
Things I’m not
I’ve let go of a lot
And held onto so much more
Somehow I’ve kept myself afloat this long
Only to find that there’s more to want

In hearing your heart beat
Feeling your chest rise and fall
Your breath so close in time to mine
Being held without fear of what comes next
My thoughts fall silent for the first time
As if life’s rhythm has found it’s rhyme
A piece I never thought was missing

Something else to fight for
Something else to hold on to
Something else to want
Something else to disappoint me
