Somebody died today Whom I really miss
It used to be a good friend.
A part of me that Had been retired for a while
Because it had run out of value.
I dumped it out a long time ago Malnourished and forgotten
Starved it in my own mind.
But I'd never thought I would see it go
It left me alone.
That part of me Loved to sing and dance
Push hope through the crowds.
It spoke of life Love and happiness too
I shouldn't have killed it.
But I let it fester away Because it had no use to me
Not where I was going.
It faded slowly at first A constant thought in my mind
Then I moved on.
I wasn't worried About what I'd become
And I felt it die out completely Just a few days ago
It didn't even say goodbye.
