Please don’t end it; please don’t cry
Just give it a thought, give another try.
Just share what u got there inside
There are still people who are by your side.
Life’s got more than a failure or heartbreak
Yes agreed that it’s neither a piece of cake.
But see the brighter side
And you – start being your own true guide.
Keep that child always there alive in you
Go out there, play; love the morning dew.
Stay alive, search for the small hidden joys
The way you loved playing as a kid with your toys.
Love yourself, live each day to the full
Don’t get weak or the thoughts let you be pulled.
Don’t end it, not the best way to say goodbye
Just give another shot, give another try.
