Bury me breathing.
With my heart still beating.
Dig a hole into the sand.
This was something I didn't plan.
My time is done here.
This is my final good-bye.
I've written you a letter to explain myself.
My confession to you.
I want you to be able to understand why it's my time to go.
I'll always love you, that's something I want you to know.
Just bury me alive, I'm broken and tried.
There's nothing left for me.
I've given myself completely.
I found what I'd been searching for all along.
My time has come and gone.
Just promise me that you'll stay strong.
I'm sorry that it had to end this way.
I'll never forget the day.
The first time we locked eyes.
I heard God whisper, "Love her."
So I gave you my heart and my soul to keep.
You kept it all along, so whenever you feel weak and feel like you can't press on.
Remember that I held you close to my heart all along.
So just bury me breathing.
My time has come to leave.
Please don't grieve.
Just remember the precious memories we shared and that I always cared for you.
When you feel like falling allow the memories to be backbone that gets you through.
Not a single tear.
The moment we shared are something I'll never forget.
I'll miss you surely.
But one day soon you'll again come faec to face with me.
And when that time comes forever will be in front of us and we can continue to grow
together like I always swore to you.
I'll give you everything that you need.
So baby just breathe.
It's my time to leave.
MY heart still beats for you and it'll never stop.
I wish you could come with me, but it's not your time to leave.
You ahve so much ahead of you.
I just hope you'll always remember and dream of what we could be.
You were the one for me.
I'm sorry I have to leave so prematurely.
I'll you kiss you one last time as you bury me alive.
Good-bye my bride.
