Before I Go ♥

Before I Go ♥

A Poem by Jen Marks
"

A very heartbreaking song I wrote a while ago, using only an acoustic guitar and soft piano. Someone who is about to pass doesn't want to go for fear that they will loose that one special person.

"

Sitting alone

Only one home

Nothing to hear

But the rain outside

And the thoughts in my mind

 

And I gotta go

'Cause I'm loosing control

All these steps that I take

They are all being traced

No, they can't be erased

 

Can't let go

Been trying for so long

Reach out

And take me by the hand

Speak slow

And wipe away my tears

Before I go

 

I've heard it before

Once or twice, maybe more

There's nothing to fear

But forgetting you

And all the things that you do

 

And I can't explain

How you brighten my day

You take all my fears

And you wipe them away

Now I know I can't stay

 

But I can't let go

I've been trying for so long

Reach out

And take me by the hand

Speak slow

And wipe away my tears

Before I go

 

Just wipe away my tears

Before I go

I often tear up whenever I am playing this song. It is really emotional to me, even though I have never been in that situation. Tell me what you think. ♥

"Just wipe away my tears before I go." This is so beautiful even though it crushes my heart, but still, the image is beautiful.

I just love this. Very beautiful and breathtaking. Would you mind I I record this and put it on my YouTube channel? I would give you all credit for writing the lyrics. This just really speaks to me, and is basically my life.

It's a great piece. As someone who's working through similar feelings, this is really powerful .

Powerful, creative on such a sad idea, not wanting to die only because of the fear of leaving the one you love, WOW. I hope someone loves me that much someday, breathtaking, you should go on x-factor or something with it, just a thought. Nice piece.

Wow, I can understand why you would tear up while trying to sing a piece like this. So delicate and strong in its personal meaning. No one wishes to say goodbye, but when we do, we only want to say it to those special people who are closest to us and who understand us the most. Inside and out. Saying goodbye isn't ever the best option in trying to make the pain to away, there are other ways...sadly, some are just pushed to the limit and can't handle it anymore.

It is very poignant ..as I read every line ,many incidents come before me gazing at my tolerance level. seeds of sorrow are sown in this heart..it grew and grew and grew older and now it is time to vanish.
