An unheard whisper
In the dark night
A sense of this world
Fading from my sight

I am going somewhere new
Where I am free to dance
This transparent life
Is giving me a second chance

I still can not forget
The old life that remains in me
It is the pain and sorrow
That can now set me free

It can only get better
After it gets worse
I am pulling away
From my traumatic curse

I learned to love
I learned to cry
But I never learned
How to say goodbye

I left my home
Without a choice
I wonder if my family
Can still hear my voice

I am struck with awe
As I see what I left behind
It is my old self
No one will ever find

I miss them
And they miss me
But I have to open my eyes
I have to see

I am long gone
But I remain in their heart
Their life is incomplete
I am the missing part

-Inspired by The Lovely Bones-
