The Definition Of Fear

I'm afraid.

I'm afraid that each time I let you go will be the last.
I'm afraid that you'll never come back,

Whether of your own will or fate...

I'm afraid that you will not be allowed to return to me.

That you will stay forever out of my reach,
In the abyss...
If Heaven is where you are meant to go...

I'm afraid I cannot follow.
I'm afraid I will forever lose you.
I'm afraid you'll find someone else.

I'm less than you deserve.

I'm afraid that life will eventually take you from me.

For I know this to be true.

I'm afraid of hello.
I'm afraid of goodbye.
I'm afraid of your absence.

This is why I cry.
