We were once a thriving town
envied by ports from miles around
plenty of fish and jobs for all
and then the pride before the fall
Did you want to see me die?
Were you sad, did you cry?
Did you never want to hold me, rock me in your arms,
Did you never want to love me, keep me safe from harm?
Who else can make me happy when all around is gloom
Who brings a smile to my darkest day and brightens up a room
Who fills my days with chatter and never wants to go to bed
Who can drive me to distraction and then wants a hug instead
Kristoffer what a wonder to me you were,
an enigma, a puzzle, a child like no other
You were grumpy and moody and I loved you so
A smile from you melted my heart because you meant it
Why is it always bedlam when it gets to feeding time
'whats for tea, I don't like that' the endless droning whine
the dog sits under the table, she's got the right idea
I wish that I could join her, it's safer under there.
