Set In Stone


I feel my pulse up in my ear

So steady, so loud, so strong

The end I desire is no where near

But now, I don't belong


You watch me suffer

You see me give in

Your heart is breaking in fear

You're my teacher

You're my best friend

Down my face runs a single tear


I wish I could stay

But my time has come

Don't worry, I'll be just fine

With every new day

Do not feel numb

But show the world how to shine


For although I am missing

You must move on

Please don't dread on the past

There is no more wishing

No more dawn

Because for me, I did not last.
