The Last Time

The Last Time short poem

If I said this was the last time
You were ever gonna see me
Tell me what would you do
And what would you say

If I said this was the last time
We would ever be as one
Tell me how would I pay
And what can I say

When they took my last breath
When I was on the brink of death
You filled my heart with life again
But the price was sorrow and pain

So if I said this was the last time
You would ever see my face
Tell me now would you grin
Thinking you would always win

If I said this was the last time
You would ever hear my voice
Tell me now would you care
And am I being fair

I have no more breath to give
I have nothing left to live
What you see is an empty shell
Living life on the toll of a bell
