Counting On You

If I live my life to be a two,
My one plus another and the other is you
How can I trust the one that I am
When my one is lost before I began?

The one I should be, is half without you
But to be a one, we must join, making two.

So, I give up my half to be you and me
Together we’re one and with time we make three
Another to share in my life lost and found
With my half then made two, into one we’ve passed down.

My half into two, into one, into three
Three who make one from that half that was me.

But like me who was half before you made me one
I’m half once again in our daughter or son
Until they in their turn find another like you
Making them half,
into one,
into two.
