Before I Close My Eyes Forever...
My blood oozes out, drains me dry,
can you hear me,
stabs of pain, that make me cry?
I Clench unclench my wrist, I do,
do you see it,
marks that my digging nails drew?
I lie on my bed, bleeding away,
can you hold me,
once, before forever still I lay?
I wriggle my toes, I can still feel,
do you care,
if whether I can or cannot heal?
My bed is stained, its a deep blood red,
will you miss me,
when I am a memory, I am gone, when I am dead?
My blood, now, drips off my sheet,
can you help me,
before I give up, before I am beat?
I must live like this till I die,
can't you stop this,
this pain, just till my final goodbye?
Suddenly, I feel, I hear my bones crack,
do you hear it,
my veins, they tear, they snap and whack?
I know you can't help me, can't make it stop,
and I can see you,
tears in your eyes, like a million raindrops,
I can feel it,
your pain, your heart breaking, and
I know- you hear, you see, you care, you feel,
you'll miss, you'll cry, you'll hold me even after I die,
You sit there next to me, holding my hand, right by my side,
and I know, my sweet love,
that this is the last thing I see, you only you, my last sight.
