For Her

If I could use a knife

To end my life

I would feel no more sorrow

Because I would be

In the Land of Tomorrow

A blade to the wrist

Just adds another cut to the list

Of the cuts I have upon the skin of my arm

When she found out

I got from her a look of alarm

She is the only reason I am still here

She is the girl who I love so dear

And I shan't cause her any pain or grief

For if I did then I would be

The worst kind of thief

I love her so

Even more than anyone shall ever know

So this I shall for her do

If only to stay with her

A girl who is beautiful and new

So just for her I won't take this knife

Just to end my life

Because even the Land of Tomorrow

Would without her be

The Land of Pain Grief and Sorrow
