A Face To Remember
Smile with me,
Don’t shed a tear,
My pain is enough,
I can’t bear.
It is I, who is going away,
Dying isn’t fascinating,
With you by my side,
I can say.
Please, please let me die alone,
So that I can at least
Shriek with pain and moan.
When you sit by my side,
I forget my pain,
I just hang in dark abyss
Of moss green eyes, your eyes.
To look at you is unbearable,
‘Cause it’s I who is deserting you.
I am not doing it by will
It’s my fate’s turn, they say
You go to church to avert it
And in there you cry and
Pray, pray, pray.
The world says
I am leaving you a legacy,
What they don’t see
Is you suffer,
Suffer at the thought that I am dying
I want to tell you,
I will always need you
Whether I live or die.
I will be watching,
I will be waiting,
Just to see you are all right,
I promise you this,
Either in life or in death….
