HAUNTED BY A MEMORY THAT DOESN'T EXIST

 

Haunted by a memory,

it creeps up into the soul.

This memory is a missing piece,

it's what makes me feel un-whole.

Blinded by a vision,

that was never truly there.

I can feel what is supposed to be,

but it really isn't here.

 

Haunted by a memory,

one that my Father left.

I don't remember him at all,

but why do I hold my breath?

I wonder why he left me,

an excuse I’ll never know.

No matter what, as his son,

he should not have let me go.

 

Haunted by a memory,

how can this memory be?

I've never even met this man,

but my soul remains unfree.

I really want to know the truth,

So, I can set my mind at ease.

I wish this emptiness would go away,

please fill this gap for me.
