You used to be so selfless

You used to be so selfless

That you'd give yourself up to the entire world

Now you're gone

You slipped away

On your 50th birthday.

We all miss you so much

I'm begging you to come back

My world's falling apart

I almost wish you could just reach out to me

But you can't

Nor do you want to, obviously

Because you're just too damn good.

I know the love is still there

It's just been tainted by so many changes

It's like sterling silver being dropped in the mud.

Something so beautiful and fragile

Yet strong enough to handle anything

That's you

That I see every night

When I close my eyes and just stop thinking.
