Where did my life go
If only I could know
It feels like it flapped its wings
And flew away like a crow
Into the depressing gray sky of a late autumn
day
How I always hate these days
That move slowand full of sorrow
Just wishing for the sunrise of a new tomorow
My heart filled with the emptiness of nothing
As I travel the once worn path of the backdays of my life
I realize its true you can never go back
For the weeds are too overgrown to clear a new track
How quickly and strangely things changed over this short measure of time
Friends once wealthy with love
Now can't spare happiness a dime
Family distant and worn out
All they do is scream and shout
Joy once filled to the top with love
He promised everything love could give
He promised a new life
He wanted me to marry him young, be his wife
To ride off into the sunset
Just like a fairytale ending
But no more his love will he be sending
The bird of my life must find a new nest
Somewhere for my weary heart to heal and and my mind to lay at rest
As I drop this match onto the life I must forget
I watch the flames rise
Then the bird inside me flies

Could really feel your emotion here...very well expressed. I always say when the weeds are too thick and high get out the lawnmower...
