when I die

I promise

I wont be

lying on my deathbed

I promise

it wont be in my sleep

I promise

I wont be

anywhere near old age

and my loved ones wont

surround me-

in fact

they'll be miles away

around their families

not me

I promise

when I die

I wont be with you

you wont be there

to see me

as my last breath leaves me

I promise

when I die

I wont leave you a note

I wont leave you

wishing you had been there

I promise

I'll leave you

wishing

you loved me.
