I Live Alone

I live alone,
cause my lover is gone.
Yes, that one,
who took my whole
and left me empty.

I live alone,
for my children are deceased.
Yes, surely,
I would've saved their lives
if I had money in my pockets.

I live alone,
in these cold streets.
Yes, indeed,
there is nothing left
but to die alone.

Don't save my life.
Let me gasp for air, like an athlete.
Cause what difference would it make,
if I continued living alone?
