To Everything That Went Right And Left

The sun’s lips on your naked skin
Kissing you all over
Your best friend by your side
Saying, even if life be a monster
We’ll conquer
This is to everything that went right
Or later left
Remember when I told you I loved you
I still do
Remember when I told you you’re my sister, brother
That you mean the world to me
That truth still stands
I checked your wall last night
Everything seems to be going your way
I’m happy
To everything that went right then left
Remember if you’re ever stranded
I’m still home
You can always come back
If you need to
