Crystal water drops
Clear blue skies above my head
Peace most things can’t stop

Then I’m told she’s dead
I break down, and good times end
I recall she’d said

“Always tell the truth
It’ll take you far in life,”
Look into my eyes

See scars that don’t heal
The pain I feel burns and sears
Don’t know how to feel

Brings true all my fears
I don’t want to fall again
But the pain just tears

At my heart, I want to end
All the pain inside my head


The author's comments:

I have had a lot of loss in my life, and I like to put my pain into words and reach out to those who feel similarly to let them know they aren't alone.
