Dying Now

Hey, dear, I think I’m dying now
Would you believe me if I said that somehow
I don’t regret anything
Not a day and not a night
That I spent with you
Love, I see the light
They have come to take me
Would they give me a minute so I can kiss you goodbye?
 
Your picture is fading
It’s getting hard to see
Every time it’s raining, think of me
Those are my tears
 
I’m dying now
It’s not as painful as I thought it would be
The only thing that hurts about it
Is that you won’t be up there with me
But I’ll wait for you, even if it means forever
Because regardless of time and place, we belong together
 
There’s nothing that I wouldn’t give
If it meant that I get to live
One more day next to you
And be able to touch you like I used to do
To be able to hold you once again
I feel like I should say I’m sorry
I didn’t meant to cause you this pain
But the moment of separation has come
My time here is done
I just want you to know that you were always the one
 
I’m dying now
It’s not as painful as I thought it would be
The only thing that hurts about it
Is that you won’t be up there with me
But I’ll wait for you, even if it means forever
Because regardless of time and place, we belong together
 
I never thought it would be this hard to say goodbye
Please don’t you cry
You were everything that has ever meant anything in my life
Now dry your tears and smile
For I’ll always be near
Watching you
And guiding your every move
Any moment of any day
I’m never far away
