The Air We Share

(Kyoto Animation)

We do not choose them they are just there
Like quiet desperation or the air we share
A mother, a father a sister or brother
A broken old chair we would give to no other
You hate them and love them
You wipe away tears
You come and you go but they're always there
Life won’t always give you the people you want
Or the endings to stories that you would have bought
