I'll Wait Endlessly
She softly asked, "Do you know what happened?
In his love I basked, he'll forever defend."
He shooke his head, and wiped his eyes.
"Though he's now dead, I still hear his cries."
I stare ahead, thinking them all lies.
Am I dreaming in bed, or do I accept the goodbyes?
Why can't I wake, as they wipe the tears?
I watch her heart break, as she nears.
"I cannot believe this," she said breathlessly.
"Just one last kiss, before you leave me."
Reaching toward her, she's not tangible.
I was so sure, she was my angel.
"Open your eyes my love," she cried to me.
"Please don't rise above, I'll wait endlessly."
Flowers laid down, upon my grave.
In her tears she'll drown, couldn't anyone save?
"How could you leave, I need you around."
How could I believe, she was talking to the ground.
I cannot breathe, cannot make a sound.
"Was your heart on your sleeve, for you're nowhere to be found?"
Wake me up, I don't wish to sleep.
To death I'll bow, so she'll not weep.
"Take my hand, and come back please!"
She cannot stand, as she fell to her knees.
Hearing goodbye, leaves me so weak.
I'm left to cry, for I cannot speak.
"How could you, do this to me?
Our love was true, couldnt you see?
Why couldn't I stay, just a little longer?
Could I even say, the bond will get stronger?
"I never thought this, was the way it would end.
I'll send you a kiss, my best friend."
She the love I'll miss, for my heart needs to mend.
