There were times
When I’d rejoice
More than I do now
It hurts a little more
Each time they wither
Changes that happen
To the mind and heart
A piece of me is gone
And I become different
Sometimes what I’m not
Or what I shouldn’t be
Outpours of sympathy
‘Move on’ they all say
But how to tell them
The turmoil within
People that we touch
Those that talked
Few we loved more
Leave without a bye
An enigma of life
Makes me wonder
Who’s next in line
If it is going to be
One that I’d die for
Wondering again
How I’d even go about
Another loved one
Fading into eternity
