Please Remember Me

I thought I was all that. Thought if I wanted to get it 
I could. I thought I was on top of the world. Thought 
everything I did was good.

So self-centered I am. Look at me, I'm da bomb! I loved
all the attention. I loved myself more than mom.

Hey, it was okay to cheat. It was okay to steal. Did anything
I wanted to. Anything that I feel.

On top of the world, looking down at all who despises me.
I laugh at all of you who are down. Who cares if the best 
things in life are free?

I am better than you all. Just look at how I flow. If you think
otherwise, then you know where you can go!

Don't tell me about love. I had my heart torn in two. I don't
love them, nor myself, and I certainly don't love you!

But suddenly my world came crashing down. Now I see the light.
My life is now in danger. A head-on collision I had in the
night.

I can see my own blood all around me. My eyes are getting dim
that I cannot see. What will happen now? No longer is it all 
about me.

If I could see my enemies now I would tell them that I love and
forgive them. I would tell them, "Though you hate me, I'm still
here when you need a friend."

I can see my mother crying. I then tell her, "Mom, please be
strong. I feel life slipping away, so hold me in your loving
arms."

"I'm sorry for the pain I caused you. I wish I could turn the 
hands of time. I love you my mother; tell the family I'll see
them in a better place and time."

As I slowly die, I look up to heaven above. I then start to
pray to the One who gave me all His love.

"My El, my El, I'm sorry! Please give me another chance. What I
did was wrong. I know my life is in your hands."

"One last thing I beg of You as I die here in this street. When 
You return to raise Your saints, I pray...please remember me."
