My loves, my heart, before i go,

There is one thing you all should know,

I tried to be a tough man,

Like the one dad taught me to be,

I tried to be your lover,

Like the one in dreams you see.

I tried to be father,

Someone to make you proud,

You know i've always loved you,

Even if i didn't say it aloud,

I feel like when I'm gone,

No one will remember me,

Just the Boy who messed up his life,

The Child i used to be,

I've been the tough man,

The rude man,

The sad man,

The crude man,

The man of thought and care,

I should be the lover,

The proud man,

The  brother,

The one no one knew was there,

Maybe i was wrong,

Perhaps i do belong,

Perhaps nothing is truley set,

I might be ready to die someday,

But i haven't got there yet.
