As I lie here bleeding amid shards of broken glass
I lament the future and all that's come to pass
I miss you as the cool night air hits me in the face
The wind around me swaying never moving from my place
I am a lonely sentry standing duty at your grave
Yet I am but a coward, you alone were brave
And as the seasons keep on turning, around my makeshift world
The anger rises within me now from where it once was curled
Why did you leave me alone, when your spirit touched the stars?
You are no longer earthen bound, stuck behind the bars
You are perhaps an angel far above my head
Is it so much better there?
Do you still miss me or are you laughter filled
You may find a better love up there
One who's more deserving of your heart and your soul
One that can afford to care
Yes maybe I am bitter, till you look beyond the mask
But can you really blame me just looking at my past
Maybe I'd be different if she was still alive
Maybe we'd have one or two or three or four or five
But maybe I'm a better man, for missing her this day
Maybe this is always right; will it always be the way?
You don't value what you have until it has long gone
But I know I'm not the only one.
