I Won't Suffer

As I sit there
On the chair
In the hospital
And hold your hand
And say
Everything will be alright
When I know
That it wont
Im trying to hold back
All the tears
That are trying to escape
From my eyes
You start to talk
About what will happen
When you die
And I just cant hold back
All the tears
They start coming out
Like they will never stop
And you start to comfort me
I am so selfish
You are the one
In the hospital bed
Preparing to die
And you are comforting me
Thats just sick
You are starting to let go
Of this world
I can sense it
Coming to happen
You tell me
I have to promise you something
And I say
Of course
You tell me
To not suffer
After you leave
And I once again
Say of course
Then you let go of my hand
And tell me that you love me
Then close your eyes
Tears are starting to come
And all I can hear
Is that solid line
I just sit there
While doctors and nurses
Come running in
I get up
And walk out of the building
And remember the promise
That I made to you
My promise is that
I won't suffer
