I Pray It Does Not Singe

I lay here in this frozen state

And pray you do not singe

This picture etch upon your heart

Of me here on this fringe

For death awaits me now

Of it I must partake

Twas love that brought you to my side

And love cannot mistake

All the days that I did live

Our hours held a means

But do not look upon me now

And cry for me in streams

Twas life that you and I once had

Cast those tears away

I lay here in such solemn state

And know I cannot stay

Love I have forever shown

The joy within me sears

Always just and right for you

Think life and shed no tears

Once for you to have

I gave a precious gift

For time spent holds the key

Your smile it shall lift

So stand and watch me lay

Tears and words that flow

There once was chance and time and love

That you and I have stole

For now you say the words

You know what you must know

So watch me in this solemn state

And know that we loved so.
