Look At Me

Look at me, see me,

Hear me and feel me.

The end is near

Of another year.

My life lies ahead,

The path I will tread

But will it be enough,

Enough for you?

I wonder what you'd say,

If you saw me here today.

Are you watching and smiling?

Do you ever see who I am?

My road is dark,

You can start the spark.

I just need a flash, a flash

Just so I don't crash, crash

And don't you see?

I all I did, all I said,

Was to make you proud.

But you are blind, blind to me.

I wonder what you'd say,

If you saw me here today.

Would you be proud?

Would you notice me?

The truth lies untold,

And my actions are in vain

I moved past the pain

But the problem lies unsolved

The sun will come tomorrow,

And tomorrow I will depart

Another life I'll start,

Leaving behind this one – you

I wonder what you'd say

If you saw me here today.

Would you say the words I long for?

Would you smile to make this heart soar?

I haven't done enough

The truth is still buried

And amidst the lies,

It's easy to see:

I've failed so badly

Now I fear it's too late

The time has slipped away

And soon I'll be gone forever

I wonder what you'd say

If you saw me here today

In that one moment, what would you think?

I want you to be proud, but am I good enough?

My life lies ahead,

A path I must tread

But what good is the glory,

If to you I must say sorry?

Now I have a last goodbye:

I promise for you I'll always try.

You are my reason for carrying on,

Past the dusk to the dawn.

I wonder what you would say

If you saw me here today.

I know I should've tried harder

I know I could've been better

But this is it,

The last goodbye.

Please just don't

Start to cry . . .
