The Bitter Truth

The Bitter Truth

A family torn to shreds by a sickness
Black clouds circling us
In a deep abyss I float like a shadow
Lonely piece of who I was
From the top of the trees I rally the others
Your breathing shallow and slow
It won’t be much longer before we will hover
And we’ll pause to let you go

For a moment we all stop and say goodbye
A silent cry
Then with no need to speak we storm into the skies
Dark lullaby

When the rain came down I tried to take cover
But there would be no escape
Every mind game played before I discovered
I would never be the same

For a moment we all stop and look to you
Our lost one who
We will not forget
But we must keep moving through
The bitter truth

Take the pause
But don’t stop too long
There is so much here to mend
There can be no way to properly send you
But we’ll do what we can
To send, send, send...
