One week my Darling,
one week to die.
After passing fifteen years of hell,
May heaven's gates open for me.
Years of the same,
months of shame
I am a vessel through which truth flows,
Lies are not swept away,
In one week of time,
I have found what is truly mine.

One more week my Darling,
one week to die.
After fifteen years of pain,
to finally pass through is a relief on its own.
Years of games,
are now in flames
I cannot be silenced, no more;
for your untruths swept awy,
in one week i found
all the life I have been withheld.

One week my Darling,
one week to die.
fifteen years of suffering
will end tonight.
One week my Darling,
one week to cry,
for I am leaving for my life.

The author's comments:
I hope none of you ever have to experience being forced to say goodbye to your entire life in only a week.

wow, it's amazing how the first two stanzas match so well and then the final stanza repeats the most important line, giving it all the more significance. it's great ~ (:
