Where Will You Be When I Die?

September 30, 2011
Where will you be when I die?
Will you be at home laughing with your family, while I reminisce on our past love?
Or will you be crying alone in the dark, wishing you had put me above?
Where will you be when I die?
Will you be kissing your wife, moved on and happy?
Will you watching your children get married?
Where will you be when I die?
Will you be wishing I was still in your arms?
Will you be wishing you hadn’t let me go?
Will you even remember my name?
Or am I just another girl who you caused pain?
Where will you be when I die?
Tell me love, will you still be alive?
When I die, where will you be?
Running wild, living life like the free?
Where will you be when I die?
I don’t know, but it sure won’t be by my side.

Quite sad, and the feeling of more than a little helplessness. I can tell it's from the heart, but that makes it all the more painful to read (for an emotional reader, at least).

It reminded me a bit of The Incredible String Band's "First Girl I Loved."

The greatest kinds of love never abandon us even in death.
