Forever

I didn't know the time
would never come
I thought that you would
surely bring it to me
I was wrong
It didn't
You didn't
It's too late now

I held on to hope
A year before
you died
I saw the spark
in your eyes
grow dim
dimmer
and dimmer
and dimmer

a miracle
could bring new hope
I said
It didn't
Life went on
In dim light

What heartache
What grief
What sorrow
What pain
And remorse

To die
Or not to die
That is the answer
To rest
Forever
