When a loved one departs from this world and into the next, the life you live never seems to feel right without them.

Why does a willow tree weep

Or a blackbird sing its dark song

Why does the moon shine so brightly in winter

And why, oh why have you gone

 

Why does the dog chase its tail

Or the sun bring on the dawn

Why do the clouds fly away with the wind

And why, oh why have you gone

 

I wept with the willow tree

The blackbird sang its song to me

 

I watched the dog chase its tail

As the clouds flew away with the gale

 

Why does the rain keep on falling

Or the skies always lead on

Why does my mother never stop crying

And why, oh why have you gone
