I lingered near the edge too long
just couldn't let you go...
I waited till there was no hope
the painful process slow...

Letting go of hopes and dreams
a dagger in my soul...
A gaping wound beyond repair
the blow, a tragic toll...

The emptiness within my heart
a void too deep to fill...
There's nothing left to hold on to
my spirit, cold and still...

The darkness overshadows me
and light has slipped away...
The angels weep beside my bed
they'll escort me today...

    I think this is great Jon. I like the fact that you've put in longer lines this time. You managed it well keeping a powerful flow. One of your best Jon.
