Random Poem:

My Life is Growing Shorter

My life is growing shorter
And my breaths are getting weak
I try to tell you certain things
But somehow i cannot speak
Im starting to fade
Off into the day
My life is growing shorter
Still theres nothing i can say
I try my hardest to tell you
But my lips are somehow sealed
So if i fade away tonight
You'll never know how i did feal
If i dont tell you
Then how will my soul be "set free?"
My life is growing shorter
So i guess it was meant to be
All i really wanted to say
Was that i love you
And all i was hoping you to say
Was that you loved me too
But to you i cant speak these words
For fear of rejection
All i really wanted
Was for you to show some afection
But now i have faded
My soul was never set free
All because i didnt tell you
How much you meant to me
