I Died Without Your Love

I Died Without Your Love

She lays there in the darkness
Tears streaming down her face
She wishes she could find away
To leave this awful place
Cause she’s sick of all the heartbreak
She’s sick of all his lies
She wants to get away from him
But all she can do is cry
He scarred her heart forever
Without a single care
He left her for another
Her fragile heart to spare
Now she sits and wonders
How she will get through
She pondered for a while
Then decided what to do
She’ll forget all about him
Erase their days of joy
Because he is not worth it
And her heart is not a toy
So she stopped her crying
Away with all her tears
She will find herself new love
And forget about past years
But the first time she saw him
With new love by his side
She slipped back into sadness
But kept it all inside
But when she got home that night
She got out paper and pens
To write out a bunch of notes
To give to all her friends
She told them she is done
Living with this pain
She told them that she loved them
But had nothing left to gain
Then she went into the closet
And got out her dad’s gun
And whispered softly to herself
The pain is almost done
Then she pulled the trigger
Her life was now at end
In a pool of blood she laid
Until her mom walked in
At first her mom was speechless
Then she hung her head and cried
How could she ever believe
Her little girl had died
Days later at the funeral
He came slowly through the door
He couldn’t look at anyone
His face down to the floor
He knew he was the reason
She took out that gun
He knew he was the reason
Her life was now done
He walked up to the casket
And said he was sorry
I never would have guessed, he said
You felt this strong toward me
Then he lifted up his head
And looked straight up above
Then he heard her whisper back
I died without your love
