Dying on my mind…


Lying on my bed, watching the stars twinkle at their will

My heart is heavy and so is my mind

I have moments I cherish, memories that refuse to fade

And yet the end is near, all I can do is watch & wait


When I take my final breath, let the air be warm

I still have things and stuff to do

The pictures on my walls remind me of “you”

The times we knew were not so little and few


You should get over me, let the good times stay

I’ll be forever yours and yours I’ll always be

The regret that will deeply be etched in my heart

Is : I wish we’d loved each other and listened to our heart


We were true and kind and patient with all that needs be done

We made our lives the perfect heaven but you still had me undone

Every time I look into your eyes, I see the pain I caused

The final touch and your kiss, was your “Good bye” but you paused….


Did you feel my heart as it breathed its last ?

Did you hold my hand and cry ?

Did it hurt, to let me go and my memories ?

Or did you wish and give it another try ?
