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
