I know you're trying really hard
   to be ok with this.

                            It's fine. You don't
                             have to keep up
                               appearances any longer.

                            I know death is more
                             painful than you thought
                                      it would be.

We all make misjudgements.

        If you were perfect,
             would I have ever
            learned anything from

Fight to the bitter end if
      that's what your instincts are
         telling you. You were always more
       in touch with instincts than I

    Still searching, but for
      What secret were you put here
           to reveal that you haven't yet?

      Too large an agenda for such a
             small body.  Some of the
            universe's mysteries will
           stay lost to you as long
                as you remain here on
                           planet Earth.

   This time around    you drink like
        there was no water left on Earth.
                     I guess we both learned
                     to fight against our
                     own self-destruction around
                     the same time.
