A single chance would have done the trick

You dint have to be so fast and quick

I dint know it was a matter of life and death

It was so brave and so full of strength

Don’t ask me because I have already lost it

The belief in myself, and why I existed?

For when you are gone

There’s simply no reason to live

I told you I would follow you wherever you went

No matter how difficult, or how different

I wish you hadn’t been so impatient

For now that you’re gone all I can do is repent

I have no reason to live; I wish you had given me a chance

I admit I was blinded and in a foolish trance

I acted with great foolery

I wish you hadn’t made that sacrifice for me….
