Couldn​’​t Hold On

from Ending Life Slowly by Autumns Eyes



I could never accept it, the fact that you were so far gone
It was so unexpected, to watch the light fade from your eyes

You were always the strong one, the one who never gave in to what we fear
I wish you could have just told us that you needed our help…

…but you couldn’t hold on, you just had to go away
You couldn’t hold on, you were never meant to stay

Now that silence has found you, we try to cope, but the sorrow it still remains
In the sadness that drowned you, I look for answers why, but all I find is pain

How does this even happen? A friend for life to say goodbye so suddenly
Despite this tragic disaster, we will never let go of your memory

After the dawn and before the stars
I speak to the sky or wherever you are
All of our time spent wasting away
I wish I could go back for just one more day

But the ink is dry, the pages set in stone
No matter how much we cry, we read the story alone

I know that you were hurting, and that you were in pain,
and you saw that you’d never go back to the days
where your life was astray from the path you laid

In the fever of sadness, you let go of your life,
but through all the tears and the senseless fears,
your life means more than your death in the hearts of us all
