I’m standing next to you
I’m screaming out to you
Why can’t you answer?
Just one simple gesture
I don’t know why you’re crying
Why are you pacing around?
A nurse comes to you very sympathetic
I’m trying to pull you off the floor
You’re saying “she can’t be gone”
You just started a life with her
Who is “her”?
What is going on?
Finally it hits me
To much unhappiness I suppose
Trying to distract myself from reality
You walk to a room and I follow
I’m hooked to a machine just to keep me breathing
You’re holding my hand as you say goodbye
I can see that you’re trying your hardest not to cry
I wish I could be there to tell you that you don’t have to be strong
I want to lay your head on my chest while I play with your hair
You kiss my cheek as they pull the plug
You whisper in my ear one last time
“You were my best part of my life”
“I will forever be in love with you”
They tell you it’s time to go
You’re starting to shake from the shock
Finally you let go of my hand
You look back one time before you see my face one last time
I feel myself fading away
faster and faster then nothing
Darkness, I this all there is?
Missing the one you love?
I’m hoping this is all a horrible dream
Maybe I’ll wake up and I’ll be back into your arms
But that’s not how death works
When you’re gone it over and you’re just gone.
