Blame Myself

November 12, 2013
I cannot blame myself
I cannot blame myself
I cannot blame myself
Why am I blaming myself?
I think you're alive I bet you're just hiding
And it's my job to do the finding
I know you're here and no one else sees it
I know it because I can feel it
I know you're watching me
I just wish you'd leave me be
I tried to let you go and give you peace so give it a rest
Unless you ARE here and this is a test
That must be it you must be here
It has to be right I can tell you're near
I blame myself
I blame myself
I blame myself
I completely blame myself
I cannot find you so you are not here
You are nowhere near
There is no test
I just need to give it a rest
I know it's not you bothering me
It's me who needs to leave me be
I guess it's my imagination I can't even see it
But I know I can feel it
You're not in hiding
And not worth finding

Thank you. I wrote this in memory for a friend of mine that passed a few years ago. I'm glad you liked it.
