I Cannot Stay

The pain arises
From the depths
Of my soul
It's never left
Always there
I am afraid
I am of death
Rest, my soul lays
Of all of you
I am not one
Because of me
You all are done
Forgive me not
I beg you please
For I am only
Not what you need
Pale and fragile
Young yet old
My soul has lived
For so long
Tired and gone
I wither away
For it is time
I cannot stay.
