I thought...

I thought I knew him
I thought he was the missing piece of my life
I thought he'd never smash my world to pieces
I thought he'd always be there.
I thought the years ahead would be filled with joy
I thought he was proud of me
I thought I was enough.
I thought I gave him all the love I could
I thought my picture on top of his piano was a reminder
I thought the look in his eyes was one of troubled water behind him
I thought I could save him
I thought more of him
I thought I knew him

I never thought my grandfather would murder a woman and wrong all the right in the world.
