Death in My Eyes

The death in my eyes
That you came to see
Was not of your own.
It was that of me.

Though hard to admit,
On that day I died.
When I said forever,
It seems I had lied.

I wanted to listen
To all my heart's voices,
As I stood there facing
The hardest of choices.

You looked in my eyes
You only saw death.
I looked in your eyes
And breathed my last breath.

As I said good-bye,
It wasn't to you.
It was to my dreams
That wouldn't come true.

To the hopes and joys
We'd no longer share.
My life ceased to be.
My eyes ceased to care.
