 From the Heart Through the Pen

……don’t shed a tear……
…it’ll only be temporary when I disappear…

I lost the love of my life
Someone oh so true
Just to find another
How do you feel great about falling in love again
Knowing they won’t be around to see it through

Strangers became connected with a simple hello
We exchanged nice to meet ya’s
She told me of her condition
Who knew what was causing her death
Would be my main attraction

It was her loveliest feature
When I discovered her passion
This transformed her into a myth
I knew exactly what had to be done
And it, I could finally go through with

The girl with a broken wing
He sent me to repair
Knowing I was at wits end
Lives I took I now had to make fair
A life about to end was just about to begin

Right when our love was blossoming
He told me it was time and I said ok
I have not a demand but a request
He said son, I can grant you but one wish
Choose wisely and make it your best

Take my lungs for I don’t need to breathe
You can have my kidney, liver and marrow
For these I no longer need
Give my eyes to the guy with the piano
And I’ll part with my fortune

It’s no coincidence her blood type matches mine
I ask that she has my heart
For I can’t have two loves lost in a lifetime
I know it’ll be a while
But we’ll both see her in Heaven again

She’ll know I lied and my name is not Ben
But she’ll be able to live out her dream
To me, only You, know how much it means
I tell her I love you and I’ll see you later
Pleasant thoughts...my life leaves...I ask her please...
