Ode To Death
I lost a friend,
didn't expect it to end this way,
to think you were there
only just the other day,
and now you've just flown away.
I shouldda been there,
I shouldda have never gone away,
I know I could have brought you back,
back to the place where you were safe.
I'm so sorry I let you down,
still praying that you'll soon be found.
Just feeling a strange emptiness,
and a pain that doesn't regress.
I've met you before,
and I know your game.
But that doesn't lessen your sting,
or the sadness that you bring.
Too many times has this happened,
and I'm still trying to find the reasons,
why you even exist,
and why you destroy happiness.
You brought so much joy into our lives,
that it's not fair that you had to die.
You had something nothing can replace,
a personality that has left without a trace.
The memories keep playing in my mind,
bringing up tears that I fail to hold back in time.
A choking pain is all that is now left,
you never get used to the feeling of bereavement.
