I saw a sad man who had lost his love
he stood with a faraway gaze.
As lost as he looked, as sad as he was,
I was minded of long ago days.
Of a time before love
of a time full of pain
of the day that my big brother died.
I watched as the messenger carried the news
his face all ashen by the burden.
He bade me sit and imparted his news.
I cried, I cried, I CRIED!!
Time passes, pain eases, and life carries on
and you love and are loved in return.
But at night in the shadows inside of the dreams
the memories come back and they burn.
