Her lungs became heavy
As they yelled out:
"Stop it, Beverly!"

She looked back in their eyes
Knowing that this is it
This was her goodbye

Tears rolled down their face
Her mind could not be changed
But they tried to just in case

Beverly let one tear escape
She didn't want to show weakness
She knew this was fate

She turned to the water below
The people became muted
Now it was time to go

Her eyes closed shut
Her body became loose
This was the final cut

The bridge let her go
The air hugged her tight
And the river became their enemy, their foe
