The Burden

I have pictures of you everywhere
But I'd rather just forget everything

Chorus:
It's like you can't go one day without still thinking of him
It's like the one you lost is still within
And you can't forget
No, you can't forget
It's life and death
And this burden you live with

You don't have to cry
And you don't have to feel
You don't have to die
You can still live
It's just the burden you have to live with

Store it in the back of your precious memories
Wake up and feel his presence within your dreams
There must be a portal between the dream world and the dead
Because he's still living there inside my head

Bridge:
I have pictures of you everywhere
But I don't speak your name
I have pictures of you everywhere
But I can't bring myself to say
I have pictures of you everywhere
But it is my burden to bear

Chorus:
It's like you can't go one day without still thinking of him
It's like the one you lost is still within
And you can't forget
No, you can't forget
It's life and death
And this burden you live with

I have pictures of you everywhere

Oh my goodness I love it, I love the way you express this it almost feels like I'm in your shoes. I'm kind of going through the same thing with my ex boyfriend. And it is so refreshing to know someone else feels the same way I do.

I can relate- which makes this an awesome song. See, I haven't had someone I love die, but he might as well have. Even people who have gone through a hard break up can relate just as well as those who have lost somebody to death which would make this song really applicable to a lot of audiences and not just a certain group. That's hard to do! Congratulations!

I mean to say that though one isn't with you anymore, at least you had that experience and possibly grew from it...but I loved the poem!
