It’s been awhile since you’ve been gone
I find it hard to carry on
My days are long, the hours unwind
To seek the peace I cannot find.
A part of me has lost its way
The rest seems to have gone astray
I heard those last words that you said
They are imbedded in my head
O’er every word, I’ve cried and cried
My son, for you, I would have died !
