“The Fear”
By Thomas Lytle

The years have gone by
Faster than we think

You have to say good-bye
While I sit back and blink

You can’t wait for that day to come
When you are free

When I can’t overcome
Watching you leave in glee

You say I’ll be fine
Without you here

But I can see the line
That is drawn with fear

To watch you go away
With no hesitation

Beats me up everyday
When I have no explanation

You see the pain
The cards have been dealt

Watch me bleed and shout in vain
The hurt you haven’t felt

Now watch the one
With your love so sincere

Wear his halo that shines like the sun
As he is killed by The Fear

When I wrote this, I was thinking about my fiance` graduating and leaving me behind at school.
