Someday In This World

The world is not the same without you in it
once a glorious palace now a mistreated wasteland
what did i do explain please.. i never meant for you to leave…
i cared for you so much more than you'll ever know

we were almost like brother and sister
but you being much older than me
this wouldn't fit the true relationship status
you were my pure blood love relative

a part of me more than you were of your own daughter
for she was easily whisked away my materialistic items
but i was one who truly appreciated the time you put for us
the fact you gave her everything you had and she denied it all

someday in this world there shall come another like you
one whom i can trust myself to completely
and have full faith in to support and care for me as only you once did
deep within the numbness is fading ever since your death took place

my mind and heart are pointing in two different directions
one for the love of a deep friend of mine, the other for a love of a stranger
this decision is beyond my knowledge to solve just all alone
this is when i need your advice to point me in the right direction

someday in this world there shall come another like you
one whom i can trust myself to completely
and have full faith in to support and care for me as only you once did
deep within the numbness is fading ever since your death took place

what will ever become of the young bright woman you once knew
the one who seems to keep living in the past full of old desires
she who doesn't understand what is fully ahead of her
she who is proud to be called your niece

these thoughts drift in my mind daily
truly questioning my way of thinking
i close the sad box and walk away from it
bringing closure not only to myself but you as well
