When I have stop breathing I will be no longer around, my spirit and soul will have found the resting place, which was prepared for me a long time ago

a new destination

You surround yourself with bright lights shining in the limelight, but when the lights go out and the stars fade away from the sky leaving the night as dark as inkwells, how will you fare, when the love of your life has gone home to eternity? Who will be your companion to have and to hold? Make bright conversation and talk of old things which brings a mixture of humor and tears.

Who will love you when I am no longer around to hold your hands and try to understand your heart’s desire, when there are no more dreams to evolve around us, and dare to climb the innovations of our minds by reaching for the stars to shine in our galaxy?

When the last song is sung, there will be no more roles to be compare to our own, and when you want me to want you, but destiny has made the choice and the atmosphere disappear, a fragrance gone cold, leaving only a moment to say the things we had planned for a lifetime.

When I am no longer in the limelight, but you will be alright, and the hurt you are feeling will be eventually restored in greater love by another kind, and though I may bow out before my time, there is a shadow that reminds me of all the good times,
They are treasured up in a heavenly gold mine, perhaps someday you will help me to spend a dime, I can hardly believe how quickly the moments have come around, because I sense its closing time, and that awful pain I recently found may no longer be something to fear, but it could lead to a moment’s respite.

When I am no longer around to hold your hands and tell about the future we had planned, you will see my shadow on the wall and in the things we took and made laughter out of, you will hear my footsteps and think that I am still here, but I will have gone far away from the familiar places we knew.

This changes everything, I am putting the record on for the last sentimental serenade, and it’s probably time to change some people, let the ones go who don’t mean you any good when I stop breathing, and if you succeed in making another dream, I can’t stop to show you the way now, for your future is no longer tied to a chance in this beautiful struggle of romance.
