The Hero Dies in This One

As I leave here today
Apartment 208
I'll always keep you in my heart.
Austin is cold tonight
The leaves are scattered on the ground
I miss the seasons and the comfort of your smile.

Sometimes this all feels like a dream
I'm waiting for someone just to wake me up from this life
As I look out at the fairgrounds
I remember how my family split apart

I don't think I ever told you
But I know you always did your best
And the hard times, they only made us stronger.

As I sit here all alone
I wonder how I'm supposed to carry on
When you're gone...

I'll never be the same without you
I love you more than you will ever know.
So maybe now you'll finally know
Sometimes we're helpless and alone
But you can't let it keep you weighted down.
You must go on

The hardest part isn't finding what we need to be
It's being content with who we are
Stay who you are!

Do you ever feel like crying?
Do you ever feel like giving up?
I raise my hands up towards the sky
I say this prayer for you tonight
Because nothing is impossible.

- The Ataris "The Hero Dies in This One" (w/ slight changes
to fit my life)

I love you Megan and 26 more days until you'll see it in my
face and know it in your heart. I know my poetry and the
songs I write in my diary usually repeat the same things
I've said to you over and over again, but I do that because
they are the things that I hold dear to my heart. You are in
my mind and heart always, and just a little out of reach.
Everynight I dream about the day you'll be here with me and
everyday I wake counting down to the day I can hold you, and
you won't be out of reach. You are the only star in my sky
and you keep me walking the path to your heart. Thank you
for letting me in and holding me safe there. I won't hurt
you baby, I promise. Goodnight. I love you.
