Shallow Breath

We promised our solemn hearts, even as our life departs.
Our smiles are half dead, no matter what is said.
I hear the broken song, playing through every wrong.
I live my life in misery, no breath left inside of me.
Say goodnight my beautiful one, arise to the heart warming sun.
So here I am one last time, writing for you one last rhyme.
You tried to stay, yet I move away.
You couldn't come along, though I'd be away for so long.
Hearing your shallow breath, I could finally accept death.
Heaven is waiting for you, you know my darling it is true.
I know I can't follow, therefor my heart's left hollow.
I guess this is how it goes, so I leave you one last rose.
Farewell my love, shall you watch from above?
You'd call me whenever, you need love forever.
Each time I leave, do you still believe?
I want to stay by your side, yet this fate I must abide.
Should this come crashing down, and leave me to drown?
Forever has no end, not for us beloved friend.
