sorrow

Her pains now gone forever,
my pains now so immense.
No longer will I hold her,
to me it makes no sense.


She was the best of women
and raised our children well.
She was my only lover,
she put up with all my hell.


We won’t have talks or walks, or dinners,
we won’t have long goodbyes.
She won’t call me on the phone,
or pick out my suit ties.


I will never see her smile again,
or even see her cry,
at a weepy old chick movie,
or if I told a lie.


She’s gone now, gone forever.
I’ve laid her in the ground.
There nothing left for me to do,
So I’ll just hang around.


And late at night with stars so bright,
I’ll stair up at the sky.
And pray to God and wait my turn,
till next to her I lie.


If all goes well, we’ll meet again,
in the sweet, by and by.
To just be with her once again,
I pray, that soon I’ll die.
