Immortal’s Lament

You saw me weeping

Down by the roadway,

Clutching my heartstrings

Wanting to feel again

You went and showed me

The light in my darkness

While I was knowing

I’d have to bury you.

Sorry for taking

So long to come back

Your children are lovely

And look at how tall you’ve grown.

I’ll tell my new friends

Good things about you

They’ll never meet you

I had to bury you.
