how love sometimes is.

I'm just sitting on this bed questioning the past,
Always asking "Why does life have to be so fast?"
Looking through the window into the distance,
And wondering if it wasn't for you what would happen to my existence.

I look back at everything we ever had,
And remembering that smiles on our faces that showed that we were glad.
What we had felt like the real deal,
But later on life showed me something I didn't want it to reveal.

I still remember that day you told me you were sick,
It was April fools so I thought you were playing a trick.
Until two weeks later the ambulance came and took you from your home,
I followed because I didn’t want you to feel alone.

I spent weeks next to you on that hospital bed,
So many things at the moment where running through my head.
Just the thought of loosing you would penetrate my heart,
I would be so close to you but feel so far apart.

Many times you would not show any signs of life,
That’s when the worse pain of all would feel like a knife.
Your parents would tell me to go home and get some sleep,
But in my mind I had the doctors saying you had Twenty-five percent chance of living on repeat.

I would sit next to you on that bed holding you tight,
And whisper over and over that everything would be alright.
The doctors kept saying you needed a donor for a new heart or you would die,
I would always shut my eyes and open them in hopes of waking up from this miserable lie.

Days kept going on and on and the doctors didn't see any change,
That’s when I told them that I would give you my heart for yours in exchange.
I knew that what I was doing meant that I would not make it,
But knowing that it would give you life it was a chance and I would take it.

So these are the last words I’m writing to you,
I hope that the dreams you shared with me will come true.
I hope that you live a happy life,
I hope you make some other guy a happy wife.

By the time you wake up, I will be gone,
I ask you please don’t be mad at what I have done.
This is better for your family and you.
All I ask in return is you place me in your heart like a tattoo.

I really want to tell you that I love you before I go,
And when you will feel your heart beat you'll know.
I'm really glad for all those times that you were with me,
And I can tell you from the bottom of my heart I'm leaving this world more happily.
