You never had to hit my grandmom

You probably thought your shouts were unheard

So you smacked her until your hand throbbed

You never gave her love or concern

So know, we're better without you.


You stole a vehicle and caused a lot of crashing

Now they locked you in a place far from heaven

You had no control over your actions

With your schizophrenia, all is forgiven

Please know, we'd be better with you.


You add confusion to life

The family is torn by your lack of attention

We know you have your own strife

But maybe my dad needs a motherly companion

Must know, we'd like better from you.


You were the shining figurehead of the family

You grew old and even took your last breathe with a smile

Now the ornaments and lights on the Christmas tree

Will hang wearily and cold for a while

We know, we'd be better with you.
