Seeing you in pain kills me slowly
Watching you try to end your life again and again
Is breaking my heart
I want you to be happy
But you still cry
Why is it that you want to die?
You gave me hope and a reason to live
Why is it you don’t want to live?
The pills you consume dull your pain
But after the drug wears off what did you gain?
I want you to live
Anything you want I promise to give
Please, don’t leave
Or I will follow
Life without you isn’t the same
But again I will ask you
What did you gain?
