I once asked this girl, would she take my ring and wed.
I didn't want to believe what she said.
My emotions started to stir.
For she said, I was beneath her.
As time passed by, I tried to forget her face.
Then one day I got a phone call, it was Grace!
She wondered how I was doing, and what I was up to.
It took only one word until I knew.
I still loved her after all these years.
I couldn't talk, I was all ears.
I could hear my heart rapidly beating with every word.
I swear it stoped when I heard.
She was sick and going to die.
All I wanted to do was cry.
Not only was my heart broken, also my soul.
I wanted to crawl into the deepest darkest hole.
Now that she is gone, I still can't believe.
I couldn't do anythng to help her, all I can do is grieve.
Now every day, I try to think about Grace.
How beautiful and perfect, was her face.
There are dark times ahead.
For it's time to go to bed.
To have another horrifying dream.
So vividly real, it shall seem.
It's pure pain, and death all around.
I can't do anything, not even make a sound.
Every night condemned to this hellish place.
Never being able to identify, my condemners face.
I wonder, do I truly belong here?
An eternity at this place is what I fear.
One day, I will not awaken.
My soul, to this hell shall be taken.
Forever to live this horrifying dream.
So vividly real, it shall seem.
I'm nowhere and I'm lost.
I am overcome with pure fear.
So many paths I have crossed.
The path I've chosen is so unclear.
I don't know whatever I shall do.
Please, all I ask of you is to help me.
The faint happiness of an ending I pursue.
For one second, I wish to be free.
I don't care how much that shall cost.
To find an ending, I shall never subdue.
I just don't want to ever again be lost.
Now I promise you this, I'll see this through.
In my heart, pure hope it does contain.
I'll forever have that, I truly know.
I will never suffer from pain ever again.
To the purest place that is called heaven, I now go.
A life taken by my hands.
They say its alright, I was just following commands.
In a time of war, you can do some crazy things.
Never do they tell you about, the insanity it brings.
All they teach you, is how to fight.
Nothing about, how to sleep at night.
So I look away with shame.
For I know what I did, I was to blame
The gate of the unknown awaits us.
One by one we pass through without a fuss.
Some of us get there fast yet others slow.
The gate keepers decide the outcome, they only know.
Now we have to travel even farther in our raft.
Through many obsticles in our path.
How fast we get to the end, of this maze.
Depends on the path we choose to take, there are so many ways.
Some cherish the travel, of being alive.
While others cherish the day they arrive.
So many people passing through this great gate.
Then we arrive to the gate where we must pay, for all our hate.
If were not seen fit, we will get sent back to the beginning.
This time trying, without all the sinning.
My desire for you burns bright beneath my chest.
When I'm with you, I feel completely possessed.
I only beg of thee, to finally be my lovely wife.
Together we shall once more have a great life.
Your future husband is bent down on one knee.
Now asking you, his wife for you to forever be.
Even if you deny me this, I would still love you.
For I know the love I feel for you, is thus true.
I couldn't live again, if I didn't take this chance.
So take my hand, under the stars we shall dance.
For truly this single night will forever remain ours.
You're so beautiful, more graceful than the stars.
Everyday that I see, I always hope you're near.
When with you, there's nothing else I'd rather do.
The love my heart contains is absolutely sincere.
One thing is absolute; I'll never stop loving you.
Without you I would truly never again have a life.
I'm truthfully ready to face this and all of my fears.
So I will ask you again to finally become my wife.
With this question, to her tender eyes, came tears.
I'll never leave your side, this I completely confess.
With tears from her eyes, she gently answered, yes.
Why am I still here, when she had to leave?
There is nothing I can now do but sadly grieve.
What ended up happening, for me was too much.
Once my pathetic little soul she really did touch.
It's totally my fault that she had to leave this place.
For what I ended up doing, I'm a total disgrace.
Haunting me eternally is such an immense pain.
Knowing that I shall never be able to see her again.
What happened that day to her was completely wrong.
On a boat with a drunken captain, she did not belong.
It was really my deadly mistake that took away her life.
Earlier that day I asked her to become my lovely wife.
She accepted, and I wanted to celebrate over a drink.
Before I knew what was going on, the boat started to sink.
Her screams of pure agony, I'll never get out of my head.
Truthfully because of me, to this world she is now dead.
That is why I cannot let go of the darkness that's inside me.
Without her, in this pathetic world I cannot ever again be.
After this absolute torment I shall never again be the same.
Yet knowing that everyday I'm the one to entirely blame.
