My worse lie

I saw it coming 
Yet I was too far away 
As my voice fell on deaf ears 
I heard the tires squeal 
As metal bent and bones were crushed
I ran towards my true love 
My tears ran down my face 
Like the blood down his
He told me to save him 
But I wasn't enough
Years of training for what?
As I held my love in my arms 
Blue eyes began to dull 
His life leaving is all I saw
Everything will be ok 
I said with a soft lie 
Believing only that it wasn't possible that he would die 
Minutes seemed  to take hours 
Till I heard the sirens till the lights finally found us.
Do you hear that my love 
There coming I said holding him in iron arms 
His breathing slowed as his voice pierced my soul 
I love you, But I have to go 
The last words his body would let him control 
No you don't I said in a voice that wasn't my own 
I can save you... I can do this.... I can't lose you 
Just hold on I promise I'll make this ok 
I love you baby so you must see another day 
A smile crossed his face 
As the sun shined 
His soul finally escaped his body's case
Tears fell from my eyes 
As if it was my last time to cry 
My bittersweet lie that I could save you 
Circled in my head 
And I realized that I wasn't enough 
That I couldn't save him 
That I had to hold my love as he died
And the last words I said to him were my worse  lie
