I Will Gladly Lay Flowers - Poem by LINET SABASTIAN

When I finally find your grave
I will gladly lay flowers on it
I will gladly say goodbye
I will gladly say rest in peace

When I finally find your grave then i will be sure
That you are gone with your lies
That you are gone with your dirty games
That you are gone with your empty words.

When I finally find your grave then i know
I will not hear your lies anymore
I will not feel your pain anymore
I will never see your face again
You will cause no pain to anyone else.

My eyes will be dry as I lay the flowers
For I feel no pain anymore
I felt enough pain for you
I cried enough tears for you
Now that i know you better
All I look for is your grave
That I may gladly lay flowers on it.

Love oh love
You are sweet
But you seem dead and gone
But again am not sure
So I keep looking for your grave
That I may gladly lay flowers on it.

    Quite deep for the 'honest lair'

    When i finally find your grave then i will be sure
    That you are gone with your lies
    That you are gone with your dirty games
    That you are gone with your empty words.
