A moment there, another, gone
A moment, just, and nothing but
A moment, infinite grief, borne
A moment, a door, forever shut.
Tis’ life, they say, they nod and shrug,
Tis’ life, strange it is, hard luck,
Tis’ life, I know, I can’t debug
Tis’ life and this, it’s going to suck.
A sadness creeps into the mind
A sadness I cannot define
A sadness, every breath, entwined
A sadness that is only mine
And with it, rage, deep and dark
And with it, rage, strong and sour
And with it rage, dreary and stark
And with it rage, growing by the hour
You, the one, always larger than life
You, the one, the party’s shine
You, the one, spirited humor rife
You, the one, a soul divine
You left, yes, you did, you cheat
You left, and you didn’t even say goodbye
You left, no, you weren’t meant for defeat
You left, forever, I will wonder why you, why?
I miss you, God, how badly I do,
I miss you, through each breath I take
I miss you, it pains, inside black and blue
I miss you, every dreading second awake.
I hope you’re proud of the life you lived
I hope when you left, you left in peace
I hope you’re happy wherever you arrived
I hope for hope, is this pain’s only release
