You said you'd be here, you said you'd stay,
But you went to heaven, and you went away.
You broke the promise you swore you'd keep,
That we'd die together in forevers sleep.
You didn't even say goodbye as you left me here.
I'm failing to choke down all these tears.
My face becomes moist, my sight turns to mist.
With my frown turned lips, i give you a kiss.
I try to look away as they lower your casket.
I'll try to survive, but I don't think i can las it.
I throw your favorite flowers into your grave.
Watching people throw dirt, over you they pave.
I feel no solace, I'm all alone.
As I see your name set in stone.
I feel a breeze, it's a wind so cold.
I remember the final words you had told..
You said to me, "Don't take your life."
I asked you, "Why?", as I put down the knife.
You told me you loved me, as its your final wish.
I shook my head yes, though I feel no bliss.
So even though I still don't inderstand why your gone,
Why god took you away from me, but i will live on.
I hear your comforting whispers, I think its a sign.
So I know I'll see you agian when its my time.
