If I Had Longer In This World

If I had longer in this world,
Than man has given me,
I know that you would find,
I’ve waited patiently.

I know that you’ll be proud,
Of just how good I’ve been,
If only I could show you,
How much to me you mean.

My dreams are of you every day,
You hold me close and tight,
And as I close my eyes to sleep,
You’re beside me every night.

I wish that I could see you,
Just once before the end,
Just to feel your warm embrace,
And know I have a friend.

So as I’m put to sleep tonight,
I have just one regret,
The only thing that makes me sad,
Is that we never met.
