I never thought it would be like this
It just never seems to go away
The emptiness, loneliness, the pain,
Every single minute of the day
I try my best to be happy,
even put on a brave face
for the family, friends and everyone
But inside my heart aches.
They say time is a great healer
I am still waiting for that day
When I can be myself again
And all this pain has gone away.
