The raindrops splashed
Tracing down your face like tears
And you would take my hand
Promising more days, more years?
Yet now, underneath the winter ground,
Your hands lay clasped, to your chest bound.
Remember how you used to be?
Your song would make us smile,
Your eyes all light
And full of life?
But then, one came for you
Like a great bird, it took you.
Remember how we used to be?
You used to laugh
And make a wish
That wish never came true.
Now your name is on a stone
And ivy covers your fragile ground.
Remember how things used to be?
