Move On

Move on, the world is fading. She's gone, she's not whole, she's lost for eternity and all you can hear is her cries in the wind. Move on, I won't let you stay I've fallen that doesn't mean you have to come with me. Take two steps back and figure out just where you are. Am I worth it? Your not answering me are you still there? Would you risk everything just so I could breath again? I barely hear your whispers are you leaving me? Move on, I know it hurts right now but it's for the best. Move on, close your eyes and wish me away. I'm in a better place now, I don't ever want to see you frown. Tears drop down on my finger tips, I touch you softly as you back away. Something are just not meant to be, you and me we'll meet again eventually. It hurt me inside that your deciding to leave now. I lay sick choking on the many memories that we may never get to experience. Move on, bury me in your mind so you won't feel any pain. I'm leaving now hear my voice slowly stopping. Can you hear me now? Move on baby I promise I will come back for you. But this time god is holding out his hand and he's offering me things we both couldn't imagine. So let me go a tear fell from her eye as the hand he held grew cold and still. The guy smiled and a sudden bitter grin. She was finally free was it selfish that he wanted her trapped? At least for a moment so they could be together. He held her limp, light hand and kissed it. Tasting coldness he knew this was him moving on.
