Broken Promise
by Sunken Tears Of Regret

You said you were my friend.
You promised to see our friendship through to the end.
But here I am on the hospital bed 
And the doctors said in about two weeks I would be dead.
I called you up to tell you the news,
Your Mom answered the phone said you were out with some dude.
You said I would always be in your heart.
Yet it seems we're drifting farther apart.
What am I to do, if I can't spend my last moments with you?
Someone once said you only get one real friend, 
I thought it was you.
I guess I was wrong, cause that's not true.
I start reminiscing about that promise you made 
And a tear comes to my eye as I realized it was all a lie.
As I laid in that hospital bed, I felt my life coming to an end.
I guess the doctors were wrong, cause I was gone.

~Life is merely a dream on your way to death.~
