One Last Moment©

You stand clenching to my cold hard hand

As I rest my head against my perfectly fitting pillow

I hear you begging for a final wish

Hoping for another chance to make things right

I no longer pray for someone to answer your cries

For I have no more fight left inside

I’m glad to lay here for an eternal while

As your life goes slowly by

I may forgive you some day

But you must remember what you’ve done to me

So that no one else kneels alongside

Someone they love

Begging for one last moment
