Moving On

I'm not sure if I should be angry But I think I'm supposed to act sad On the day, I heard of your passing All I know, is for ME, it was bad Your family can't stop their weeping Your friends were all glad, it's not them And shortly we'll all get together To sing you an old, but short hymn Soon they will bury your body But I will not visit your grave 'Cause I know, you are still in existence And no longer one of us slaves But the reason I think I am angry Is not that you left me just bones Is that you went to the next life without me Leaving me stuck here alone
