You'll Have To Stay Alive

You'll have to stay alive for the sake of all those leaves; which brushed past
your dainty skin while you walked in wilderness,

You'll have to stay alive for the sake of all those dreams; you saw every night when in deep sleep,

You'll have to stay alive for the sake of all those droplets of rain; that passionately cascaded down your body; when you stood beneath the clouds,

You'll have to stay alive for the sake of all those nostalgic memories; that reminded you about your past every unleashing minute,
 
You'll have to stay alive for the sake of all those jokes; that engendered you to thunderously laugh; every time you heard them circulating in proximity,

You'll have to stay alive for the sake of all those clothes; that you vibrantly adorned while dancing unrelentingly; till wee hours of dawn,

You'll have to stay alive for the sake of all those patches of earth; that you inadvertently tread on while achieving your mission,

You'll have to stay alive for the sake of all those things which you felt; transmitting you into waves of unparalleled ecstasy, when you were deserted alone,

You'll have to stay alive for the sake of all those birds which loved your presence in the morning; singing to you their absolutely favorite rhyme,

You'll have to stay alive for the sake of all those dolphins; which leaped in exultation; the moment they witnessed you standing near the shores,

You'll have to stay alive for the sake of all those roses which yielded you their pristine scent; fervently awaited you to water them at dusk,

You'll have to stay alive for the sake of all those butterflies that kissed you nimbly on your cheeks; while making their expeditions towards the open sky,

You'll have to stay alive for the sake of all those eyes that admired every task you accomplished; bolstered your confidence every unfurling hour; in your quest to achieve supremacy,

You'll have to stay alive for the sake of all those idols you vehemently prayed to; which made your life a blissful experience to exist on planet earth,
You'll have to stay alive for the sake of all those people who held your hands; assisted you to cross the streets bustling with obstreperous traffic,

You'll have to stay alive for the sake of all those cow's which fed you with milk every day; grinned at you subtly as you fed them with delectable clusters of green grass,

You'll have to stay alive for the sake of all those draughts of wind; that incessantly imparted tenacity to your lungs to contentedly breathe and stay rejuvenated,

You'll have to stay alive for the sake of the parents who evolved you; raised you this big from the stage of being an inconspicuous little child,

And more importantly than anything; you'll have to stay alive; for me, as the my heart would relinquish to palpitate; dying a ghastly death the very instant your
beats separated from mine.
