This is my heartache
To bear witness, to listen
As one of my adult sons
Cries from a heartbreak
Only to me will they cry
As I make soothing noises

If I die today,
Would I be missed,
would someone miss me?

If I die today,
Would tears fall,
would someone cry?

If I die today,
Would that change anything,
would the world be changed?

If I die today,
Would anyone care?
No one would ever care. . .

I speak to fast
and say too little
I wrote the ending before I wrote the beginning
I don't notice
The missing stars
In the skies
But I noticed
The missing sparkle
In your eyes

And in the bleakness
Of it all
The deep black of night
I wonder what might be wrong
And how I can make it right...
Anticipating to see the light
I overlooked the darkness
but moonless primes offered stories
where even sunshine couldn't battle.

— The End —
