They showed me the real face of life way too soon
Forced me to watch, bear witness to the onslaught
I saw them pine away, I saw them die
I was there the whole time, I did not blink my eyes
I watched as my beloveds were gone, just like the sand in the wind
Slipping away with each breath, every movement seemed fatal
I grieved, I prayed and I hoped that they may be spared
I wanted to be spared too, spared from the pain and sorrow
To see life becoming more meaningless day by day
Getting emptier everyday, as I watch my home
Once filled with my beloveds, now standing alone
Who would understand me as I cry out in pain?
The world doesnt understand my struggle
They havent seen me writhe in helplessness
How can I explain and how can I ever put my misery into words!?
The world seems ignorant as I burn inside, as I smile everyday and dont break down
They make it difficult and wait, wait for me to give way
I also wait, wait to see my life destroy everything that I ever lived for.
