Are you lonely tonight
Because your heart was broken?
Are you lonely tonight,
Shedding tears from all the emotion?
I was a Union soldier.
The battles were long, bloody and tiring.
I often had streaks of blood
All over my uniform.
Do you know what I feel inside?
It's something I can no longer hide.
It's the way I feel about you
After all that we've been through.
Being with you wasn't right,
But it did not stop me every night.
I just kept having all these mixed feelings
As I stared at the four walls and the ceiling.
As I feel the breeze coming from the ocean shore,
I think of how I loved you more and more
As all those days and nights went by
And the seagulls flew across the sky.
Can you feel for me? It was my daughter and her child
Torn away from my heart by some man whose passions went wild.
Does he care that I'll never see them anymore?
He just ignored their cries when they hit the floor.
You don't have to rewrite your love lines.
They are coming out just fine.
So by all means, love me.
You're the sand, I'm the sea.
Did you receive my poem the other day?
In it, I was asking you to come back to me and stay.
I need some stability in my crazy and hectic life.
Please save me from all this pain and strife.
Do you have room for me?
In your heart?
In your mind?
In your soul?
Jason, if you can hear me from way up above,
This is a tribute to you.
Your life was cut short,
But you've left your mark in this world.
