It’s been a long time, a long time indeed
Since I’ve been this alone, where is she
Who once upon a time would’ve been
A beacon of light for all to see?
I call for her with all my might
Yet it seems I no longer am in her sight.
I blame her not,
I can relate
I too see no worth in myself,
How long have we
Come down this dreary road
No spark left now
To kindle this fire long gone.
Alas, time’s sickle
It’s finally struck down
Unwilling to let us rise
From the ashes anew.
It’s been a life of glory
No need for me to lie,
Much to be proud of
And yet here I sigh
Who dare say they care not for life?
And now, at last, it is time
For me to leave this world behind.
