Change in life is never easy, but you have to learn to deal with it because life doesn't slow down for stragglers.

I can see your face as the smoke lifts away,
I can see the tears falling from your eyes,
And I want to catch them for you, put them in a bottle to help you lock up your sorrow,
But then water came down from the sky, too much for me to contain,
So I watched as you crumbled to the ground, waisting away,
But I'm sorry to say I didn't shed a tear, I kept them in a bottle on my mantle,
And even now that September's over, time has dried your tears, but mine are still too real sitting in that bottle on my mantle

It's better to get the crying over with-- youll forget about your tears faster and have more time to laugh ;)
