Now You're Gone

When I have nothing to do
I try not to think of you
Or the way you left my heart in a million pieces
The way you walked out the door
And said I don’t love you anymore
How you left me on the floor 
Crying myself to sleep for so many nights
Hopping that I might hear the phone ring
Then you’d appear and everything would become clear
But now it’s been over a year since I shed a single tear
Now when I think of you It’s all I can do not to hate you
I do not cry anymore but my anger becomes high
Higher than the sky
Yes it has been long since I’ve moved on
And now I am thinking of you again 
But not the way you left me that day
Only of how stupid I was to let you in
Now you’re gone
Just like you had been all along

    ... all that goes up must come down ... life comes, death comes & who knows what's in the after-life? your feeling of loss & even those angry moments constitute the humanity in all of us ... for, we are all in the same house that finds joy-after-the-sorrow, or sadness-after-the-joy ... so, sister, your piece is an apt conveyance of human realism & a great consolation to mankind ... even the words are strikingly appropriate! welcome, dear ... Cheer up, the more! Canny
