I sit back and dream for just a little while
Of every happy moment; of every smile
Some are old and less are new
And I come to realize my happy memories are few
I look the other way to see a rope
And through my eyes flash a light of hope
The pain would be small
If only I could find something tall
Now I'm outside standing under a tree
I look up to see branches and leaves towering over me
The knot is tied; it's on the third branch
With any luck this'll work
But I know that's just a chance
Now everything's done; everyting's ready to go
As I start to climb, I can feel my blood flow
I look down and for a moment I think I must be as high as the highest cloud
Now that my heart is beating so loud
I almost forget the whole thing; I almost drop to one knee
But with tears in my eyes, I remember the worthless me
I decide to keep going
Only God's eyes are upon me; of this I am full knowing
I jump and my body swings slightly
And I feel the rope close around my neck tightly
The colors blur; it's dimmer now
A silence falls upon me, unaware of when or how
A familiar face runs up and begins to cry
I look down upon her with a simple reply
"Tell everyone I said Goodbye"
Blackness comes; embracing my hope to die
I take my last breath; my heart is at peace
I am no longer a part of this word; all desperation and pain soon will cease
