Margaret Atwood – “I Would Like To Be The Air That Inhabits You For A Moment Only.”

I would like to go everywhere
but still make you the home I live in;

I would like to be your strength,
be your source of confidence,

be all that makes you feel happy
even though you wouldn’t notice me;

it would be hard for you to appreciate me
because taking my love for granted comes to you easily;

My love for you is like the air you need to stay alive,
unconditionally given till it’s time to bid goodbye
till then I will continue to keep you breathing

then I’ll leave when it’s time and will show no pity,

no matter how hard you’ll fight to keep me. .

“I would like to be the air that inhabits you for a moment only. I would like to be that unnoticed and that necessary.” – Margaret Atwood
