The Suffering

The Suffering

I am tired
I am weary
I am lonely
I am sad

Why be tired? Rest
Why be weary? Pace
Why be lonely? Socialize
Why be sad?
Because she is gone
Why is she gone?
Because they took her
Why did they take her?
Because they no not what they do

Are they greedy?
Yes
For what?
Fame, fortune, whatever
Does that make you mad?
That makes me sad.

Why?
Because there will be more
Why?
Because they must do it
Why?
That is their job
What is their job?
To cut
To Poison
To burn

Is that bad?
Sometimes
When times?
When they don’t tell
Tell what?
Tell the aftermath

What is the aftermath?

I cry every night for you
I miss you so much
I cry every morning for you Read the rest of this entry »

Don’t Grieve For Me

Don’t grieve for me now, I’m free
I’m following the path God laid for me
I took his hand when I heard him call,
I turned my back and left it all. Read the rest of this entry »

Falling in Love

I thought a little relationship history is in order for those not in the know.

Falling In Love

You came into my life
In that little blue suit
And I fell in love with you

You sat and you swished
When you crossed your legs
And I fell in love with you.

You spoke in a voice
That was so sweet
And I fell in love with you

My sleeves were rolled up
My tie was pulled down
And you fell in love with me

I hired you on the spot
And sent you upstairs
Now I knew where you would be

I opened another office
Just for you
I put you in charge
To keep my eye on you

A problem came up
And I spoke harshly to you
You teared up and were hurt
And blurted out, Don’t,
I love you

Things were different then
Things were wonderful
We went on a crazy ride
We went on a crazy love

We did everything right
We did everything wrong
We didn’t care
We were in love
We were wild
Oh, so wild
No one kept up with us
No one would try
We had the spotlight

Business went bad
We huddled together
We decided to marry
We decide to settle

What a life we had
For ten years before
And ten years after

And then the iron struck the fire
And the worst was yet to come
We huddled again and decided
We would fight the monster to the end

It seemed like we would make it
All encouragement was positive
But the lies of information
And the lack of the truth

Were all that it took
To take the life of my love
To take the love of my life

Suffer No More, My Love
