Details | Free verse |
Another haunted night, I watch raindrops fall from consolatory words, track each plane flying south, and I think of you. My lungs empty a lonely sigh… I bullet a dark, heaving sky with my angry words as I curse you for walking away again. I remember the starlings that came earlier; they circled low, then perched along the eaves while the sun held me in afternoon glow, as if to say goodbye, friend. We will meet again. I should have known. Night after night, shadows march a solemn procession across a long-faced moon. I know he is mourning, too. Weeds tangle my thoughts until I dream in a web of mismatched memories and neglected clues - so many questions, left in a heap at the foot of our bed, no answers said out loud. Solitude plays games with my heart; mocking me tonight, the house wins again. Why do I gamble after I lost you before? How many times have you walked out that door? I try to mend cracks exposed when darkness fades into golden dawn. I try to color my crumpled world like a child. I paint smiles on your face in our albums to tell myself lies. I replay the moment you walked away; I envision every detail down to one lace that dangled from your new shoes, new shoes bought to step into our new life together. I remember when we wrapped ourselves in our dreams to keep warm. One day, your face will dissolve like a rain puddle on a summer day. One day, I’ll say goodbye and start again. Maybe today will be that day. At least today, I’ll try. A lone starling in a dark, glossy suit lands on my window sill at break of dawn. It wakes me with its sweet, warbled song and waits long enough for me to rise from bed so I might feel the promise of a new day shine into my soul. Then, as my tears fall soft like spun silk, he spreads his wings and flies away. In light of dawn’s blessings, I am the starling, singing a goodbye song. I pray, tonight, I dream of anyone but you. written April, 2014

I see big changes, 
Everybody's walking around,
Heads face the ground,
You made us all so very proud.
The eleven man crew is one man down,
Gone but not forgotten in Bath town.

I pinch myself at the thought of you,
I wish you could have sat and talked it through.
Now all we've got are shirts for you,
Durbz 5 and I don't even like Man U.

When we didn't have a job all day it was just us two,
With no money we'd scrape and share a spliff or two.
With that instrumental CD you'd freestyle like you do,
And I'd never join in so now I write this song for you.

Who'd have thought you'd end like this,
I never thought you'd play out like this.
That cheeky grin and the laughs we'll miss,
You were a legend, please know you will be missed.


I didn't know you in the wooley hat crew,
But the WESA boys all got love for you.
now when I play in goal it'll seem like the defence has a gaping hole,
Remember when you lobbed me and score that amazing own goal.

If I was Doc Brown I'd come back for you,
Jump in my Delorean and travel back a year or two.
We all regret we didn't do more for you,
But who could predict you'd do what you'd do.

All those fit girls that you had,
Something of a Jack The Lad,
It makes us all so very sad,
But I knew you and for that I'm glad.

However life keeps moving on,
And your family and mates are trying to stay strong,
I can't help feeling that it's so damn wrong,
You lived life to the full but it wasn't for long.

It's so upsetting that you are gone,
But in time we'll meet again and I'll sing you this song.
When we meet at those pearly gates,
You learn exactly what you meant to all of your mates.

R.I.P Durbz, Happy Birthday.

I've Scribbled This Song For You...

I'm wasting my days,
my empty nights too,

I should have held on,
but I simply lost you,

now I stagger along,

wearing broken smiles,
in between hell and you,
there's a million miles,

yes, I should have kept,
you close to my skin,

soaking your warmth,
but you were laughing,

at my foolish grin...

now I'm all broken,
and torn apart,

but what the hell,
I was always late,
for the tolling of the bell,

and now...

now I stagger along,

wearing broken smiles,
in between hell and you,
there's a million miles,

so kiss me now like you once did,
I'm tired of being so carefully hid,

la laa laa la laa laa laa...

(repeat to fade)

Written for the contest

Have you ever seen, the sun setting down
Upon this red roofed town
And hear the sound of love begin
I have never found a more perfect place
Than, when I see your face
I simply fall in love again

Don't ask me which way the wind will blow
Or the tide will flow
Or even where, our love will go
I just know there could never be a place 
Where I can’t feel your warm embrace
With those lips I love to taste

Have you seen the mountains rising from the sea
That’s where I want to be 
With you eternally, in grace
We hear our tune, carried along the wind
Strummed on life’s violin
As a tear rolls down your face

Don’t ask me why the good times seem to fly
Or why some passion dies,
Or how lovers, can say Goodbye
All I know is when I leave this tropic heat
I am filled with the Latin beat
Until the next time on this street,  we meet

Once you filled the room which hollow for a moment
Couples of days before new year eve we indirectly met
Hilarious to remember how we know and admire each other that day
Without knowing it won't last forever

One song... One song keep chanting me back to the memory of you
The song of blue sky collapse
Year goes by, first, second and more
Each of my story buried you without trace

Until today you seek me through the mailbox
Simple words as "happy birthday" and more words as "still think about you"
Surprised, touched, even mine still one more day to go
You missed the day, but you caught my yearn

Thousands words would I type to reply
But the fact my hands stoned
I missed you even more, sealed beyond these words
But don't know how to say nor expressed it through the blank page

Once you filled this hollow room
Once I ever loved you
But I found my better way... better life...
And decide not to look back

January 7, 2013
Dedicated to the person who ever dwell within the past of my sweet memory...

I lost you out there.
You never came on home.
I called for you and I called to you,
but you never came on home.

I lost you out there,
in the bushes and the brush.
I called for you and I yelled for you,
but you never did come home.

Don't say you couldn't hear me.
I won't listen if you do.
I lost you, and I left you,
and you never came on home.

I lost you out there,
but it's what you seemed to want.
I yelled for you for nights and days,
but you never once yelled back.

I walked and walked between the trees,
squinting toward the sun.
I called for you and I screamed for you,
but no, you never did come home.

We're headin' out
Our bags are packed
The dream is over and
The boxes are stacked
But I can't...forget...this place
I don't know how
How to let it go
I can't find a way
I can't go with the flow
All I that I love...this place

The faces pass and memories fade
My whole life...turns to shade
All I that I'll miss...this place

No more fun
Gotta buckle down
No more games
Gotta drop this crown
I hope I don't...forget...this place
Days in the sun and
Nights by the fire
I'll miss those times
With a burnin' desire
I'm gonna...miss...this place

The faces pass and memories fade
My whole life...turns to shade
All I that I'll miss...this place

We're headin' out
Our bags are packed
The dream is over and
The boxes are stacked
But I can't...forget...this place
I don't know how
How to let it go
I can't find a way
I can't go with the flow
All I that I love...this place

The faces pass and memories fade
My whole life...turns to shade
All I that I'll miss...this place

Here I go writing the bare truth with this alter ego,
so nuts I'll go, expressing my thoughts so no one knows
as I let go.

I could of wrote this under my own name, 
but for the thunder of the pain
it'll bring cus they'll complain and i can't be bothered to explain.
I can't be tamed, so I'll relieve my brain and no one is named.

I'm talking about those two demon siblings
who stand as one hurting my feelings like true villains.
They are my own who I disown 
and boot out of my life so they become unknown.
Right after I confront them face to face with no remorse. 
With my outburst and rage on a collision course,
and even if I hurt them they've still hurt me worse.
They made my mind go berserk, 
two nasty jerks with embarrassing quirks.

Looking down on me as though I'm a peasant
but at present I'm isolated and feel unpleasant.
They better keep a distance cus I'm worn down by the persistent
refusal to include my presence,
they are rude, so I've no resistance
left to prevent a handing out of pain and it's possible 
in this event I will be unstoppable.
They've been to cruel and hurtful to not be evil,
so when I'm done they won't be able to crawl or move at all, 
it'll be brutally horrid but enjoyable 
watching as they go off to hospital,
and what the hell if I end up in jail.
I would have been so loyal 
but that's been spoiled, 
thank god I got to see what a relation can be,
before all this it was something I could not see.

Now I'm gracious as I know where my place is,
but my god if I see their faces 
I'll behave outrageous, 
I gave and was betrayed, 
they've made me dangerous,
and I'll get locked away but they are the ones that belong in cages.

generic minds listen to generic music
have generic thoughts that are unknowingly abusive
watch generic things talk about generic things
gee this generic *****is spreading like a disease
better get your flu shot 
thats what they said to me
a suicidal vaccine 
a subliminal killing spree
its contagious and the outrageous
thing about it is that the people are blind in an eye
that they didn't even know they had
it's sickening to watch these clueless civilians 
inside the looking glass
with nightmares of being free
without a key to their mind
for it is trapped in the frequency
in the illusion of time
bathed in our universe
killing all that refuse to see
those that admit to hypocracy
or see the message in hip hop
how cant you see
the message in the lyrics that
bring adolescents to their knees
from bullet wounds conflicting their flesh
contradicting that they're the best
but the songs keep telling them that they dont need no rest
that they dont wanna go home
that they should ride alone
with the gat as their only companion
and so the only path they choose is the one that they're told
until they grow old and hope turns to a window pane
inside a window pane, until all they feel is pain
they realize that the music itself is ashamed
so whats to look up to
when you cant even speak when you cant even walk because you look so bleak
your eyes are sunken from the tv you're infested with the dee zees
now its too late to turn around and live for your conscious
so when youre screaming oh please
close your eyes and bring your mind to life
open your eyes for the first time
and never wonder why
since the answer this entire time
has been inside
and you better find it before you die
you dont want your soul to be in a pool with all the others
a buncha brothers missing their mothers
but only seeing strangers
only feeling the haters
wishing they would have used their minds when they had them
and now its too late,
now it's time for another new born fate to grab them

"Goodbye, Winter" is a children's song, sung to the tune of "Frere Jacques".

Goodbye, winter,
Goodbye, winter.
Hello, spring,
Hello, spring.
Tulips in my backyard,
Tulips in my backyard,
Are blossoming,
Are blossoming!

Bonus activity: Take children outside for recess on an early spring day and sing this 
song. Ask children how they know the seasons have changed and that spring has 
arrived. Is the air warmer? The grass greener? Are flowers blooming? Are butterflies 
flitting about?

if i die tonight 
tomorrow is no lie 
wake up in the morning
go about your life 
if i die tonight 
remember me inside
all the good times 
i wasn't always right 
if i die tonight 
because i wasn't liked 
forgive all my homies
coming for you life 
they know if it was them
tonight i will go ride
if i die tonight 
mamas gone cry 
i didn't leave a son behind 
to brighten up her life
if i die tonight 
my girls  moving forward 
 turn that ass over
shes going to see my face
wasn't ever sober 
i couldn't feel my face 

i don't like you mondays 
deuces now I'm tuesday 
on my grind like hump days till the day i die 
wonder why I'm rappin bout the day i die
cuz when that day comes 
its a rap 

back then wasn't always good 
now a days aren't as they should 
i don't know about u but god is good 

if i die tonight forgive for what i did
damn this life of sin 
didn't trip let me rip 
wrist watch absent 
captivate like traffic
don't wonder why was i an addict 
trust me i don't wan a die
i see myself in action influenced many lives
righteous why shit had to down like this
woulndt go back track 
just play it back 
idk wasn't ever the type to follow 
pray to see tomorrow
broken promises i know
truth is hard to swallow
if heaven had a gecho 
id let go of the steering wheel 
call it suicidal 
I'm alright tho 
I'm in this like 5 4 3 2

thanks for listening

June 18, 2013 our world was Forever Changed
We where a few minutes from home
When we got the call from our baby sister

Said we need to get back home
We need to come as fast as we can drive
Mom really needs us
Something’s wrong with Daddy
The whole way we drove 80
Hoping & Praying we’d make it back in time

Our Family & Friends were weeping 
By the time we got to his side
We knew then our Daddy had been taking
And our hearts they were breaking
We never got to say Goodbye
We each softly kissed that man
We four sisters laid down beside him
And cried just like babies
For our world was Forever Changed that day

A smile moves across her lips
She gazes at her crime
A scar across her flesh and soul
To haunt her for all time
She’ll waste away for all she cares
Never stops to use her brain
Doesn’t care about the ones who are close
All she cares about is pain

She wants to be what the others expect of her
Doesn’t care about the self-respect for her
A rose can’t be a forget-me-not
Can’t she see what all she has got

Never to go back again
She feels the world is at an end
She will never show her grief
Although she’ll cry in empty streetS

She’d sooner live like a desolate mole
Living in fear in an empty hole
Screaming silent wails alone
Content to live in her mental home

A final tear falls from her eye
It hits the ground, it’s followed by
A beautiful body, mutated by hate
A kind word could have stopped it, but it is too late
One two many bricks in the wall in her mind
Molding her demise because her heart was blind
This self conscious being could never have won
For she was destroyed by the beautiful ones

She wouldn’t fight back, wouldn’t respect herself
In the end, she managed only to wreck herself
A rose can’t be a forget-me-not
Little did she know, she had all she had sought

Your  love pricks me like a rose each thorn grows but no one knows Your so full of 
it as it shows so carry on now go on, go. I'm fed up with the phony and  i'm 
through with the tears, you couldn't pay me all your money to make up for those 
years. Someone help me I feel faint how could I think he was such a saint and 
worst of all I let me fall into a spiral down below. A magic called love carried 
by the dove of someone I use to know.

You played me like a violin
I can't believe I fell again
But clouds revealed the moon, and I was taken
Your eyes were closed
Your words were spare
You ran your fingers through my hair
But from your whispered breath, dark lies were spoken,
The moon betrayed me, .......a storm is waking.......
Have you betrayed me? world is shaking.......

Those empty words that still resound
pound in my head and I have found
Your love was like a tunnel going nowhere -
I crossed a bridge
And took a risk, 
I fell right in,
But couldn't swim 
The drowning rush surrounds me like a river

I dived right in it........I can't deny it
I would survive cry a river

You came to me without a plan
I should have known that it would end
The echo of the thunder tried to warn me

A distant voice
Inside my head
A cloud appeared with laden air
And pulled me where the heart's a frozen ember

I see the lightning......  I am frightened
I hear the plunder....  a distant thunder

I hear it now, the pouring rain
It beats against the window pane
And now the chill just sends a quiver through me

Storms only come
When I'm alone
Torrential songs are drowning me 
A broken heart can't stop the rain from coming in

When vows were spoken,     a sun was shining.......
But I heard thunder, ....       and you denied it

And truth came pouring down upon my head

I want to sing you
I want to write you
I want to watch you
And describe you

I would like to compose you
You, my ninth symphony
To put you on a stave
To play your melody

I want to sculpt you
Without engraving too much
Hardly anything to change
Some details to fix

I want to photograph you
Under different lights
To whip with the flash
All those artifices that are hiding you

I want to break your records
Go through your body's limits
Jump higher, run further
When man an athlete is one

I could go on with other arts
But none of them seem good enough to define you
So I'll go on in which my words are the finest
For you, I'll never stop writing

Where did you go, you who just passed me by and left?
Are you doing fine, at a place without me by your side?
Hoping you'll come back, the times I've waited for you
I'll let it go now, I'll forget you now.

The beautiful times we had, they're all memories now
The tears I shed when I missed you like crazy
Hoping you'll come back, time stood still
I'll let you go and leave now, goodbye.

Couldn't you find it, the road that leads back to me? 
Should I wait a little while more, should I wait here a little longer?
Hoping you'll come back, I waited all this while
I'll let it go now, I'll end it for real.

My love for you that I held on so tightly, is slowly dissipating
The me that went crazy missing you, is gradually changing
Hoping you'll come back, time has stood stagnant
I should erase it all now, for real.

My love, it ends right here, this never-ending yearning 
Stuck in my throat, I couldn't say it
Those heartbreaking words of parting
All my beautiful memories of you, it's leaving me right now.

Like falling tears, my love is slowly dissipating
The me that went crazy missing you, is gradually changing
Hoping you'll come back, time stood stagnant
I should erase it now, for real.

Should erase it now?
I should forget you now, goodbye.. :(

End It
By: IzaDonna

My demons crouch real low
Seeping out of me real slow
The pain protectively covered
Darkening memories like no other
But I hide behind a smile
This life not seeming worth while
The blade I have is ready to go
Life already being at an all time low
So bring on the darkness
i no longer have a purpose

I push you away to protect you
My sickness n pain being nothing new
So save yourself from my sorrow
Cause I won't live to see tomorrow
You deserve someone better
So let me be and go find her

Loneliness is my own choice
Feeling so lost with no voice
So I let each day slip by
Everyday just wanting to die
What have I become
Where did all this pain come from
Being left alone is my desire
The spark going out in my fire
My days I feel are at an end
Too far gone to possibly mend


So bring on the darkness
I've lost my purpose

Your paper-thin porcelain skin,
I know how to get right under it.
For kicks is why I do it now.
You tell me to love but I never knew how.
Our feet hitting pavement,
We spent the day in sunny California with sun kissed skin.
I’m learning to forget and how to fade scars,
And you let me let myself down so hard.

Your paper-thin porcelain skin,
I know how to get right under it.
And now I just do it for smiles,
We’ll never see flower girls stumbling down aisles.
I’d lose my head just before that chance,
But if you want we can still have a first dance.
Cause I think I say things that I don’t mean,
Once upon a time you meant the world to me.

Your paper-thin porcelain skin,
I know how to get right under it.
But I’m trying to refrain,
To make this not all end up in vain.
Maybe I can learn to love like some people do,
And you can learn to love yourself a little too.
Or it is in all fairness to let this go?
I guess we can try but then we’ll never know.

Before, while, and after I said goodbye
I couldn't help but sit there and cry.
I cried on and off for 7 hours and slept one
Woke up and cried again, I still wasn't even done.

Two more hours…wake up again.
Every so often a tear falls in the open.
I literally feel an aching pain in my chest
Thinking of how I lost you, wanting to forget.

I'm feeling sick and I still haven't ate.
I want you…my thoughts aren't straight.
Mane, almost every about you
And almost every thought…is about who?

Someone who could have been playing me
Or showing me where my desires could lead.
I wanted to tell you everything, I wanted to say more,
There wasn't enough time and now my broken heart's feeling so sore.

I just wanna be alone and listen to this depressing song,
I can't get you out of my head... it hurts. Is that wrong?
I understand that I may be foolish wasting my time hurting over you.
But in all honesty my dear, I really wanted us to be something too.

TORN (song Lyrics)

A part of me wants to leave you alone
A part of me wants for you to come home
A part of me says I'm living a lie
And that I'm better off without you.

A part of me says to think it through
A part of me says I'm over you
A part of me wants to say goodbye
A part of me is asking why?

A part of me wants to leave
But a part of me wants to be here with you
And every time I think we're over and done
You do something to get me back loving you
And you got me just torn.

Torn in between the two
'Cause I really wanna be with you
But something's telling me
I should leave you alone
But I really want to be with you.

And you got me just torn in between the two
'Cause I really wanna be with you.

There were no issues when we started out
It was cool, it was everything that love's about
But something happened, plus I feel it's over now
'Cause I can't understand you now.
Now, I just can't understand you now.

A part of me says it's all my fault
A part of me says he ain't what you want
A part of me says to get my bags
A part of me says I can't do that.

A part of me wants to leave
But a part of me wants to be here with you
And every time I think that it's over and done
You make me fall back in love.

So many times I had my foot out the door
So many times I thought to give you a chance
Thought you'd be a better man
Now I'm sitting here and I'm so confused.

'Cause I keep fighting myself for you
I don't know how much more I can take
But I can't feel this way
You got me so torn...

Surrounded by darkness
Emotions hidden away
Bruises disguised with smiles
Never would think it
That my past still haunts me
The scars still completely cover me
I hide them so you can't see
I'm really not at all okay

The bottles eases the pain
The dust numbs the ache
Can I ever just forgive?
Instead up building up this hate
I just want to find peace
I want my smile to be real
But its hard to do so
When I can no longer seem to feel

Frightening dreams keep me awake
Forever replaying in my mind
Life seems to be so much longer
This winding road so much harder
Can I just get a release
Beat these inner demons and be free
Or do I have to be forever cursed
With the ghosts of the past


I look up at the stars
And close my eyes tight
Its time for last good-byes
Its time to end this tonight
I take one last chug
And fall to the ground
Take one last gasp
And then no longer make a sound


I'm finally okay

My eyes
Witness your departure
My eyes
Are dripping with hopelessness…
My eyes start to blur…
Melancholy put me under pressure…
Is there a cure to my disease? 

You don’t see
The shards of hope that once brought us back together
Just let me search for safety
I’m strong enough to realize that I’m no longer
The weakest prey out there…

And I’m left in my solitude…
Do you hear me whimpering like a distraught puppy left on the train tracks?

I’m close to my demise…save me and take me home

Nourish me…and be my beloved friend

Will this friendship last forever?

Hopefully it has no end

Will this cheerful moment help us get along with each other?

Because of you…I feel the need to run 
I keep an eye on you – I worry that you’ll hurt yourself again
Because of you…My freedom is nearly gone
I don’t wanna be caught off guard again
Because of you…EYE can’t picture a solution for our vexing dilemma 
Because of you…eye can’t focus on my long-term goal 

And I’m left in my solitude…
Do you sense that I’m giving in to failure? 
And I’m close to my demise…
Only to find myself disappear…I can’t endure 
The hardships that you place upon me…
Could you boost up my confidence to overcome 
My atrocious anxiety? 

I’m just waiting for some sun
To keep me in good hands…
To strengthen me with perseverance …
I’m just waiting until His son
Leads the world outtah Egypt and reveals to us…
His radiance…His dazzling Kingdom – 
Vibrant with glee

Your undying sympathy dawns upon us
I’m overflowing with indescribable joy  
You’re a candle in the night…
We meet eye to eye…
What a sight…what a precious sight

This August has gone away

like our childhood –

calmly and almost by chance.

The sky had too many stars

and strewed the earth with them.

I stretched my hands to them, 

I tried to catch them.

But they were burning

without any smoke or sound.

And August went away.

Does the music make it real?
A melody makes us sing along
But the words are from the quill

Without the words the music's blind
It can't see where to go
For the words are how a song's defined
And the music's just for show

Wrapped in notes and chords to tease
It's meant to entertain
But it always takes the words to please
Or the music's played in vain

The words are there to touch the heart
Or the music might be missed
For it only plays a minute part
If the words did not exist

Some has said that poetry's dead
But they couldn't be more wrong
For the poet sees the music's fed
Or there couldn't be a song

Note: This will be my last poem I post for a's time to move on to other things.....Whisk

Oh baby, you know I'm hurting
and you treat me so unkind!
Oh baby, you know I'm hurting
and you treat me so unkind!
Stop your hustling baby,
you making me want to cry!

I go down to Louisiana
and buy you a diamond ring,
I said I go down to Louisiana
and buy a big old diamond ring!
Yet, you still treat me so unkind!

Feeling like I'm going to die,
and you run off with another guy!
How could you treat me so, unkind?
See me baby, I am about to cry!

Oh baby you know I'm hurting
and you're nowhere in sight!
I said you know I'm hurting,
and you're nowhere in sight!
Stop that hustling baby girl,
'cause you know I'm about to cry!

There you go baby
running off with another guy,
stay out all night,
don't come home till dawn!
See me sleeping,
all alone and out of mind.

Don't make me cry baby,
don't you make me cry.
I said don't make me cry baby,
don't you make me cry!

I said baby
if you make me cry,
I swear I'm going to leave you alone.
See me go,
catch the first train out of town!
See you baby girl,
I'm going to leave, goodbye!

Goodbye baby
I wish you all the luck!
I said goodbye baby
I hope you the best of luck;
because you're going to need it,
because I'm not going to be around!

My eyes
Refuse to see tragedy
My eyes
Marinate in dread…unable to embrace ecstasy 

And I’m left in my solitude…
My eye’s sagging…from endless mourning  
And I’m close to my demise… 
Only to find myself disappear…
When will peace draw near?

You don’t see 
What damage you’ve done
Just let me be
Leave me alone…hand me a gun

I yearn for unspoiled glory
To make me feel perfect once more
I yearn for flawless serenity
To make me feel no regret…don’t ignore
My calls…don’t hang up on me

You don’t see 
What damage you’ve done
Just hear my plea
Listen to my excruciating cries…
Listen to the truth, not the malicious lies  
Our journey has just begun   

And I’m left in my solitude…
Do you hear me weeping?
And I’m close to my demise…
Only to find myself disappear…
When will peace draw near?

Eye can’t handle the stress
Let me release my horrendous distress
Eye can see you making that same mistake
At least MY life isn’t at stake

And I’m left in my solitude…
My eye’s weeping…do You feel my lament
And I’m close to my demise…
Only to find myself disappear…Stepped on like cement
I’m aching with discontent… I abhor this torment    
When will peace scrub off my fear?

I can’t believe my eyes
Your guiltiness flows into me…
I can’t believe I fell for your lies
Your heartless action rape my mind…you don’t see
What my EYES see…

You’ll never see 
How much pressure you put me under
Unchain me from this chamber
And watch me flee…

When will you be set free?

our love has come and gone
just like the freshly played melody of our song
though i cannot lie
i will sigh
to you i will say a final goodbye
our love has faded away
like a breeze on a hot summers day
our love has gone out of fashion
and its time to move on
because our love has come and gone
like the faded memory of our song
and with a sigh
to you i say a final good bye

Goodbye childhood my sweet friend
We laughed and cried as our world begin
Our lives felt safe and time was long
We celebrated each day with a new song

Goodbye youth so strong and bold
We were proud and we felt owed
Our lives were fast and time was long
We drink the wine of night's song

Goodbye adulthood we did it all
We made the big world feel small
Our lives were full and time long
We cherished living with our song

Goodbye old age you came too soon
We reminisce as the end looms
Our lives grow slow and time is fast
We sing songs of our glorious past

Goodbye death my final friend
We knew we would meet at the end
Our lives are gone and time is none
We sung our songs and we are done.

There's this emptiness that increases
As I look at the blue sky, the loneliness heightens
Once again I close my eyes and picture you
I feel so numb at times and it's hard to let go
I stare at the clouds wishing i could float away too
The world has no place for me now
I miss the song of summer, the gentle cool breeze
I miss the old me...
I can't get back what I've lost
What remains is a cool facade
Beneath all those sweet smiles and brown eyes
Lurks an ocean of pain that is just too deep
I know you won't understand and that's fine by me
I try to touch my dreams and they crumble and fall apart
As I close my eyes tonight and stand at the edge once more
I wish to fall and embrace the light.
