Please,

I'm begging you,

Just breathe.

Don't go.

I love you.

Take my hand,

So if you go,

I go with you.

Why God?

Is this my punishment?

Then punish me,

In any way but this.

I'll do anything.

Come on Little One,

Lets run far away

Until we're done with this tough luck,

And until we have escaped this setback.

It's just that right?

A setback.

No. 

I am holding a small flame

That's melting fast.

This is no test.

I need to hold onto you

For as long as I can

I won't get to watch you grow

or buy you many clothes.

But I will nurture you,

And make sure everyone remembers you

Forever 

And 

Always.
