Treasure Island

Alice Silvers

(Montreal Quebec)


I am dead, gone forever
I wonder why this happened to me
I hear my loved ones cry
I see them suffering
I want to tell them it will be alright
I am dead, gone forever

I pretend they can still feel me there with them
I feel so helpless
I touch my coffin as they lower my body into the ground
I worry people will forget me
I cry because they cry
I am dead, gone forever

I understand I must go
I say I love you
I dream of the day I will be with them again
I try and console them silently
I hope they will be alright
I am dead, gone forever

It is very nice to think

In every Christian kind of place.... Read complete »
