Candles on a Birthday Cake

Chapter Text

They no longer want to say farewell
but now they must:

Their time's been short
but it's coming to a closer
and now the angel
knocks on the door.

Once upon a time, he would have wanted
it to come, to come and take his soul

But it's not here for him
at all.

And for who he's come, he's always
wanted to stay alive, live another day
and now even more, together
forever –

But forever's not to be
and his timer's run out.
The angel's calling now
and it's time to go.
