Oh my darling, please don’t

Don’t let depression sear your heart

I know it’s hard to say goodbye

But sometimes friends must part


You are not the one to blame

It would have happened all the same

My dear you know it’s not your fault

And yet your eyes, they fill with salt


Each drop a day remembered

Each tear is like the tide

Each cry, a plea to have him back

Right here by my side


Oh how cruel fate has been

A battle that none would win

Loss and pain hand in hand

A villainy I cannot stand
