Michael McParland (7-19-1983 / Dayton, Ohio)
Can It Be?
Can it be this tree of life has ceased to be?
The leaves have fallen the core is dead.
The rest of eternity I fear and dread.
Can it be that all is gone?
When the tree of life bloomed bright and strong.
I guess it's dead I guess it's gone.
I guess there's nothing left to be done.
