They say life goes on, but you’re not here?
My grandmother tells me that only God knows;
so I want to see that man and ask him why.
I’m upset and your memories are with me still.
I didn’t even get to see you out or say goodbye.
I’m left asking why, but only God knows.
Seeking a response but my calls go unanswered.
They tell me that I have to move on,
but I’ll never get a call or visit from you again.
I go to your home, but you’re not there.
Knock on the door for days, but no one comes out.
Why did you have to leave me here alone?
I will never hear you laugh again.
Never come to you for advice in the dead of night.
Never laugh at your attempts to dance or be smooth.
Why did a true friend have to end up gone?
Only God knows.
