    You're not yet gone, but you get weaker by the day
    and I stay on my knee's...and I pray, and I pray

    What a messed up way to die...
    I'm so tired of telling my loved ones, bye

    You're a treasure to know, my beautiful one
    you're leaving behind you, two daughters and a son

    We have the same blood running through our veins
    now your life is cut short, by somebody else's games

    You're so young and beautiful, a sight for sore eyes
    and it tears at my heartstrings...to say my "good-byes"

    There was nothing you won't do for us, there's nowhere you wouldn't go
    yet I stand here with tears, counting the days, when they'll drop you down below

    I seen it comming, as I kneeled down to pray
    for the creator to come ~Gently~...and take you away

    Since pleasure, has turned into a Death Wish
    it leaves you to wonder...who's next on the list?

    I need to say this, yet I say it with anger
    be very careful people, cause out there is danger

    ~WoW~

    The same thing that's bringing us in this world...is taking us out
    :bomb:
    The very thing that's giving us life...is taking our life....away

    Should I leave Or should I stay
    I just dont know what to say
    I will leave you with a kiss
    One that you will surely miss

    Thanks for hitting us with this piece.

    We are all standing in line to leave these bodies when that day comes. Each day is like the first and last days of our life, and a gift worthy of our respect. I'm really grateful for the warmth of you, for being and sharing. :picture:

    I read this piece twice, because what I thought you were saying the first time, hit me like a shot in the night the second. You're wording on this was so on point and heart wrenching especially:
    "The same thing that's bringing us in this world...is taking us out
    The very thing that's giving us life...is taking our life....away"
    We want to share ourselves physically with that special someone, show them just how much we care, but my God, it could very well kill us. Peace sista.
