There are many things in my life,
My darling, that I regret. Little things,
Mostly, but there are
Quite a lot of them.
I am not sure why, but
As I lay dying,
Only one came to mind.
There was no white light, no
Heavenly voice. Instead
There was only you, my darling.
All I could see was you walking
Away from me. Yet I could do
Nothing more, my darling, than
Watch you disappear into the crowd.
My darling, oh how I wanted to go
After you, beg you to take me back.
I don’t think there has ever been
Anything I wanted like that. And yet…
And yet, my darling, I truly did
Believe, that it was best for you to leave my
Life. I still do, but as I lay dying…
All I see is you, my darling, disappearing into the crowd.
