When The Sun Went Down On You

Life at times just ain't fair. It teaches a bitter lesson.
I go to look at myself, but in the mirror I see your

So hard you had tried. So hard you put up a fight, but 
you couldn't prevail when the death-angel took you that 
fateful night.

I curse the day when I heard that ring. I went to pick up
the phone. I lost all consciousness when I heard she was
dead and gone.

I didn't want to believe it. How could this possibly be?
My bestfriend has left me! Always she stood by me.

My day was a good one until the moment I lost you. How am
I to face the night when the sun went down with you?

Somebody out there is crying. You lost someone so dear.
I know how it feels when you cannot stop your tears.

A wife has lost her husband. So many years they stood
strong. Suddenly he was taken, leaving this woman to
grieve and moan.

A husband has lost his wife. Behind him she always stood.
She held the standard of a woman on how to treat her man

A son has lost his mother. He tries to keep moving ahead.
But he can't...often finding himself by her grave instead.

To mothers, fathers, children, cousins, aunts and uncles
to. Tell eachother that you love them before the sun sets
on you.

The sun sets on us thus bringing on the night. It goes 
around to rise again giving us its radiant light.

Though you're gone
I'll remember you,
This my friend that much is true.

You'll rise again
Sleep on my friend
The sun will rise again with you.
