I love you, for your stupidity. :)

I sit on the bench at the first light of day
I see a bird flying away
gently fly away

Later I sit in a hospital wondering if she’ll be okay
Then I here nothing her soul has walked away
gently walk away

Then I watch the stars as the trees sway
Then I see a leaf as it glides away
Gently glide away

Eventually it is my time too, in the hospital bed I lay
I don’t feel, I don’t think as I gently fade away
Gently Fade Away

My grandmother passed and I felt like a part of me had died with her. I felt like I was fading.
