My Last Breath

Hold onto me, love---
You know I can't stay long!
All I wanted to say was
I love you, and I'm not afraid.

Can you hear me?
Can you feel me in your arms?
Holding my last breath---
safe inside myself are all my thoughts of you
sweet raptured life---
it ends here tonight.

I know you hear me---
I can taste it in your tears!!

Closing your eyes to disappear,
you pray your dreams will leave you here!!
But still you wake and know the truth---
No one's there!!

Say goodnight---
don't be afraid!
