I thought I had forgiven him
moved on with my life
the world that I'd been livin in
had me blind

I thought he would come back in
but he never did

The room was full of strangers
Noone knew my name
They all smiled politely as I passed

They said he had no children
that was news to me
I didn't wanna cry
so I just laughed

He said that he would come back
but if the truth be told
I waited twenty years
he never showed

I thought I had forgivem him
Moved on with my life
the world that I'd been livin in
had me blind

I thought he would come back in
but he never did


** written after attending my father's funeral and had not seen him (although I tried desperately to find him) in over 15 years. All his friends said he had told them he didn't have any children so they were very surprised to see three grown daughters show up. (

It is indeed very sad. Death dashes all hopes and finalizes all.
