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. ♥

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