I wish

I wish I had the words to say
how much I feel so sad today.
From worst to worst I could not stand,
to stay away that far from you.
I used to sing; to laugh and to dance.
You did the same I was a prince.
But now alone, I understand how much
I was wrong at the end.
I should not leave you my dear love.
I should be on the stage to play.
I promised you to be with you,
now I am away for having you.
Please wait for me, I will com back to you,
as soon as strong as I love you.
And if somehow, I come too late &
I could not reach you anyway.
Do not forget me when you pray to God
Please tell him that i say.
"My God forgive him he was lost
he spend his life back on his way"
