Don’t Forget Me

A piece from my book:)

 

The day sneaks up behind me
Telling me my time has come
Time to leave behind all that I’ve worked for
Knocking on every door
Begging for a chance at life
I’m leaving and I have one wish
Don’t forget me when I leave
Don’t forget me when I fall into the emptiness
Don’t forget me when I try to escape what consumes me
My time has come to say goodbye
My flight to the heavens has arrived
Survived the battle of life for so long
Everyday closer to the loss of this everlasting battle
Don’t know if my imprints in this life will last forever
I’m leaving and I have one wish
Don’t let me drift away into the nothingness of the forgotten
Don’t let me fade into a memory
Don’t let me be lost amongst the commons
I came and I made my mark
Used my dreams to light way out of the dark
Wanna be remembered as more then just a common man
Want people to give a damn about me when I leave this cage
Don’t want to be recieved into the hands of the unmourned
Don’t want to spend eternity feeling forlorn
I’m leaving and I have just one wish
Don’t let me turn into a torn page from a notebook
All I have in this world means nothing when I’m gone
I don’t want all that you have of me to be just another memory
Want my story told for all to hear
So I can rid myself of this fear
I’m leaving and I have just one wish
Don’t leave me in this cage lingering in the dark space in the back of your mind
Don’t wanna be lost for no one to find
Getting tired of being left behind
Stepped up on this plateau
Up here for the world to see
That this is me and I won’t be forgotten
Won’t be forgotten
I’m leaving this world and I have just one wish
One wish
Don’t forget me
Don’t forget me
