Goodbye

My heart is still beating
and I'm still breathing
but my soul is breaking
and it's driving me crazy

My wrist are sliced open
and I'm still hoping
but my blood keeps on dripping
and my life is now slipping

My tears are falling
and I'm still calling
but my voice keeps shaking
and my time I keep wasting

My head is pounding
and I'm now drowning
but your voice I keep hearing
and it's telling me to keep on believing

My end is near
and it's all so clear
but don't blame yourself, my dear
and before I go--
I think you should know
what a hero you were.

You were the only one
to hold me up
and make me smile and laugh
when I wanted to cry

Now I must bid you goodbye
and hope you live a wonderful life
farewell and take good care, tonight.

Really liked it, almost a bit too depressing, but it was really good, nice work
