Last Prayer

God if you truly exist listen to my plea
Please take back this life which was given to me

I no longer wish to be here, I no longer wish to stay
I give this life back to you, I give it all away

Everything that was good in me has long since gone
To my loving children I’ve passed most of it on

I’m an empty vessel of the man I used to be
Please take back this life which was given to me

Take this life back and do with it as you please
Give it to someone who’s more deserving than me

This empty life is just too much to bear
Please if you exist, grant me this last prayer

Amen
