The fire rages around us.
Destruction, death, and agony.
It's like the world is ending

I turn to find you
I call out "Elly!"
I see you lying there.

I try to wake you up
I look at your body
There's blood everywhere

My world is crumbling down
My life feels meaningless
Why did this have to happen?

I cry out "Please Elly!"
My hands are stained with blood
Your life is slipping away.

I pick you up
I call for help
But there's no response

I cry with pain
Not the pain of my wounds,
But rather, the pain of losing you.

"Please live, my love...."
