The news I heard the other day
just shook me to the core
I wish I’d been told another way
just like that time before.
It’s never nice when something ends
but life goes on, I’m told
sometimes loved ones and dear friends
die long before they’re old.
It happened once when I was young
but then I was told a lie
They are not dead they have become
the stars up in the sky.
That was before and this is now
The shock’s too much to bare
I try to be brave but I don’t know how
to hide this deep despair.
Today I stand here cold and numb
I’m shaken to the core.
But I believe, the day will come,
we’ll be together, ever more.
