Gone

Six feet underground he lays,

With tears still fresh upon his face,

Gone

………..Gone

………………….Gone

To a place I know not where,

………………….Gone

……….Gone

Gone

Never to return.

~

Deep in the earth his slow decay begins,

The deep set eyes of youth fading with the days,

Gone

……….Gone

………………….Gone

Far away from my own reach

………………….Gone

……….Gone

Gone

Never to return.

~

The words which left his lips last

Haunt my every thought

Gone

……….Gone

………………….Gone

Drifting off with the sweet winds

………………….Gone

……….Gone

Gone

Never to return.

~

Its been so many days

And slowly the mind forgets

Gone

……….Gone

………………….Gone

Flying high with his new wings

………………….Gone

……….Gone

Gone

Never to return.

~

If only his words I could recall

If only his voice I could but still hear

Gone

……….Gone

………………….Gone

Across the horizon of all hope

………………….Gone

……….Gone

Gone

Never to return.

~

Six feet underground he lays

And there I leave him everyday

Gone

……….Gone

………………….Gone

Maybe we shall meet again

………………….Gone

………..Gone

Gone

With hope of sweet return.
