"A beautiful personality shines brighter than any pretty face"


The ice cracks underfoot
And you stop
Your life flashes before your eyes
Looking at all you've been through
But those bittersweet thoughts won't save you
See?
You're falling through the ice right now
Into the dark is where
You plunge deeper and deeper
Say goodbye, sweetheart
Say goodbye
To all you had to live for

Your screams for help are muffled by the water
Your breath gets sucked away, rising to the surface to save itself
Leaving you wondering what ever happened to the phrase "no man left behind"
The icy chill holds you close
Clinging to you as if you were the last threads of life
Into the dark is where
You plunge deeper and deeper
Say goodbye, sweetheart
Say goodbye
To all you had to live for

Life had never seemed so far away
The cold had never seemed so close
The water wrapped you in its mocking arms
Tantalizing you with terrifying comfort
You try to speak but no words come out
You try to breathe but there's no air
You try to stay awake but the water lulls you to sleep
Into the dark is where
You plunge deeper and deeper
Say goodbye, sweetheart
Say goodbye
To all you had to live for

Your voice is gone, nothing's left, not even a whisper
Your sweet melodies and harmonies are long gone
Your beautiful words and ways are taken
Into the dark is where
You plunge deeper and deeper
Say goodbye, sweetheart
Say goodbye
To all you had to live for

I hope people will read this poem and think of all they have. To be grateful for all they have. They could loose everything in a a second's notice, but they won't realize what they have until it's gone. Live for the moment, and never take anyting for granted.
