The Last Dance

We were separated through time and through chance. 
We danced to our song, but is it now our final dance? 

Dear hon, I write this letter just to say I love you so. 
You're always on my mind and I will never let you go. 

You're always on my mind for each time and each season. 
Why am I breathing? Look in the mirror...you are the reason. 

Dear hon, you are my sunshine that comes after the rain. 
My everything you are. You simply take away the pain. 

You're all that I want and whatever it is you do. Just 
know this, I'm in love...I'm in love with only you. 

You received my letter, but I feel it in my heart. 
Something isn't right. I sense we're drifting far 
apart. 

You responded by saying that this was really hard to do. 
Not only sense, but now I know that something's definitely 
wrong with you. 

It was then that you told me you had a secret to tell. 
You told me you had cancer with months to live. At this I fell! 

I simply can't believe I'm about to loose my girl. You can't 
leave. You cannot leave! Don't you know you are my world?! 

Dear hon, I can't believe it. Just say it's all a lie. Say you 
aren't dying. I shall believe...at least I'll try. 

We're suppose to be together till the end of time. We're 
suppose live forever holding your hand deeply in mine. 

Dear hon, I booked a flight. I'll be there soon as I can. 
Please hold on, my love. I want to simply hold your hand. 

Here I am at the hospital. You're on your dying bed. 
I'm shaking and I'm crying as I lightly hold your head. 

You looked into my eyes 
The fear...it was there. 

I said these words to you 
"I'll always love you. Babe, I swear." 

Please don't die, my love! My life revolves around you. 
I say this with my heart. I say this with utter truth. 

Please don't die, my love! What more can I really say? 
You're always on my mind both in the night and in the day. 

Please don't die! Please don't go! For I will be missing you. 
If you die, how will I live? How can I breathe without you? 

It was then that you died. Down the halls they hear my cry. 
Why did this have to happen? What's the reason? What's my crime? 

They pull me from your body, but I cannot break away. I'm crying 
and I'm screaming as their taking me away. 

Here I am a lonely man with only few words to say. I stay up 
crying through the night even to the break of day. 

I know you'll rise once again. I'm committed just to you. 
I'll dance with you again, my love...I'll dance again with you.
