Across the very edge
Of my soul

And over
And over again
Until I die

I can't remember who said, "love makes all things new again", something very commercial I'm sure...so unlike what you have done here, your idea, seems to me, maybe only to me, to make us eager to be new again, and afterward, safe within our renewed skin. This is really lovely. Thanks.
