My eyes open on a new day, it’s Wednesday the 11th of November,
As I open up our curtains, I am welcomed by the cold winter
I turn around to see my Wife smiling, we have now been married for
7 years to the day;
High school sweethearts since we were 15 years old, best friends
in each and every single way.
Years spent together, as I grew from a boy into a man;
We made memories full of happiness, since the very first moment
that our love began.
Holding hands for an eternity, stuck in a reflection which always
shone back two;
Heaven truly did send me an angel, secretly disguised as you.
I whisper “you stay wrapped up warm, whilst I go to the shop, and

to see my beautiful Wife waving me goodbye;
I blow a kiss towards my angel, as she pretends to catch it from

smile on to my face;

ice hidden on the road;
My car starts to flip and roll off the tarmac, as the ground got
darker the skies above me glowed.
With each roll the car makes another memory of my life flashes me
I feel my tears fall, as I scream to the heavens “please don’t take
me, I don’t want to die”.
My car comes to a rest on its roof, as I tremble out a lost
goodbye towards my love;
I feel an angel rest their hand on my shoulders, as my soul starts
to rise up high, into the heavenly blue skies above.
As I climb higher and higher into the sky, I watch on as my car
ignites into flames, turning my dreams into ash;
It was never my destiny to live, it was always my destiny to
