Turn your back on me, will you?
I want to see how far you can walk
without faltering or looking back. If you can,
something rubbed off you, when you were in my arms.
Turn your back on me, just let me see
How long you fight your tears
while keeping a straight face. If you can,
you took something from me, when you looked into my eyes.
Turn your back on me, I have to know,
That you can live fearlessly without me
and yet care for yourself. If you can,
your heartbeat must have felt mine, when you melted into me.
Turn your back on me, I want to test,
Can my knees hold my weight, my heart endure the pain?
While I knock on hell’s gate. If I can,
It should not be too hard, when I fade into oblivion.
