BEFORE GOODBYE


Cry for my struggles,
Long before they’re done,
Before I forget this troubles,
Let me know I’m not alone.

Think all about it,
Long before the tabloids,
Before my mind rests,
Let us think about me!

Shout my name before I fade,
Before I descend to Hades,
Before they fill in my ears,
Shout that I may hear.

Cast me in all of this light,
Long before my last rites,
Before my eyes are robbed of sight,
Let me see me shine.

Reward me for it,
Long before I turn to silt,
Before my hands go limp,
Let me know I deserve it.

Plant a tree for me,
Long before I cease to be,
Before you wail and cry,
Let me smile before goodbye.
