To whom it may concern
I thought to myself "Is this real or a dream?"
The wonder at such a moment "can it be? then why me?"
Amazing how deceptive we are to ourselves
Just to have a companion to love and grow old
The common conception better to have loved then have not
Is a lie told by people given up on their shot
I faintly remember regurgitating that theme
But regretfully stated renouncing the lie as I glean
This sadness and sorrow is something that surely will pass
But it feels like I'm dying like the end's come at last
Victory is sweet but defeat has me stricken
A funeral for innocence loss of hope, no conviction
Hopelessness rots inside as the day's promises leave
Left with nothing but pain and the shame well received...
