I tried to save you.

I knew you were in pain.

I reached out to you,

And you took my hand.

I was hurting too,

I knew we were the same.

You were healing me,

And I thought I was healing you.

But it turns out I didn't play my part.

I lost in all my sorrow,

And didn't realize until it was too late.

You are fading away,

And I can't do anything to stop it.

I wasn't good enough.

I have failed you yet again.

I caught you when you were falling,

But you let go of my hand.

I tried to save you,

But you refused.

I'm screaming your name,

But still you can't hear me.

I'm grieving over you,

Knowing what you do to yourself.

I can't stand it.

I'm losing my mind.

I'm helpless to watch,

As you destroy yourself.

Can't you see that I love you,

And always have.

I would die without you here.

I love you the way you are,

And I would give my life just to see you happy.

I wasn't strong enough.

I have failed yet again.

I caught you when you were falling,

But your hand slipped from my grasp.

I tried to save you,

But I have failed.

I give up.

I've tried everything I can.

But you still refuse my help.

I'm trying to make things better,

But you keep pushing me away.

I want to help you,

But you keep getting farther away.

But should the darkness ever fade,

I'll be waiting here for you,

With arms wide open.

You'll come back when it's all over.

But what if the darkness should stay forever?

I will have failed the one I love.

I wasn't good enough.

I failed the one I love yet again.

I tried to catch you when you were falling,

But didn't get there in time.

I fear it's too late to save you.

I have failed yet again.
