i am you (freeverse)

i am you
i wear you when you're tired of wearing yourself 
i take your burden when you can't bare it 
through the years, me and you, we have both grown 
not through age but through mind and spirit 
as time passes, as we both change 
it doesn't matter where we are or who we are
our essence is in each other
you take my guilt and i take yours
we burden ourselves equally
how could i ever lose you? 
when we're both part of this whole
