The Day That I

The day that I rise, I wish I’d raise a toast with you,

And proudly announce that the biggest reason for it was you.

The day that I rise, I wish you stood by,

Even if to no one’s gaze, I still hope you comply.


The day that I cry, I wish no eyes would see,

So there be no questions asked, and I’m left to be.

The day that I cry, I wish it’s in your arms that I tear

But you’ve long been gone, and left no reason to be sober.


The day that I die, I wish to see a bright light,

And rest in assurance that there’s nothing but peace after that.

The day that I die, I wish it’s beside you that I’m laid,

If not when alive, atleast in death we’d be together like once said.
