Weak and Helpless

On the way to my dreams
I suddenly heard screams,
And found myself weakened
After the wheels bursted

I see nothing but black,
Am lying on my back
Here's no faces appear;
But their cries, I do hear!

My body is dying,
But I still want to sing
With Mother one last time
Our favorite rhyme

I cannot breathe no more,
But I should be in store,
Helping my Father sell,
And to hear his laughs well

My blood is running out;
I want to cry, to shout!
My lips are being sealed
By pain that can't be healed!

I've never sung the love,
Nor was reason to laugh;
But I have no more strength,
So I'll die with regret
