I am sitting in the dark with my love as we look into each other’s eyes. I know if they take her away there is no life. Take her away and I will die. Tell me this is not goodbye.
Do you remember the butterfly? It made me cry. We dried up its wings so it could not fly. Do not say goodbye.
I wonder if this is the end for you and I. I know I have to say goodbye. I know I would change my life for you. I would die for you. I remember all the things we used to do, all these memories I keep of you.
With your image in my eyes, I take you with me telling no lies.
I swear I will find you. I will keep searching for you until the end of time. If I cannot survive without you by my side, then wait for me on the other side.
I barely see you anymore. You must remember the butterfly. It did not die. I love you.
