    I will not turn back today...

    If I leave now
    I will not turn back today...
    Not even when your palm
    will be pressed against the glass wall,
    or your knuckles will rap
    and rap again on the barriers too tall,
    too tall for you to even see me
    or climb it to see me fall.
    I will not turn back today...
    Not even when my life jerks forward
    I will not turn to see you trotting along
    I will not stop no matter how much it hurts
    to see you fade in distance one day
    when I am too far gone,
    I will not turn back today...
    Not even to give you a final good bye
    Not even to share those final few words,
    Not even to see you disappear
    in a cloud of exhaustion and distrust
    I will not turn back today...
    And reach for that horizon
    accepting what ever life has to offer
    Whatever for me it has in store,
    this life that insists we bear sorrow upon sorrow
    long after we can bear no more.
    I will not turn back today...
