Too Soon to be Forever

There'll soon be a day

When I shuffle

Shuffle, shuffle

Up to them

See them all carrying out their

Normal

Every day business

And disrupt their patterns

Change their lives

Because mine will have already changed

I'll walk up to them

And I'll have to tell them

Despite the stabs of pain

The block in my throat

The desert-like climate in my mouth

That something happened

Something

And I'll be leaving

Soon
Very soon

Too soon

I'll have to bear the looks on their faces

Forever

I'll have to carry the weight of their words

Forever

I'll have to cry their tears alongside my own

Forever
