Growing in the night,
The tears fall away.
The world seems so far,
As I stand alone.

The wind is frigid,
And I gasp for breath,
I shake profusely,
Half frozen, half scared.

The city sparkles,
As I look below,
To give up all hope,
Would be to fall away.

Forgive me father,
For I’ve let you down,
Don’t let it end here,
Think of me always.

The pain pushes on,
It seems eternal.
Forever I’m lost,
I now have no hope.
