The Somber Truth

I thought your cheerful smile could never die

You were taken in the summit of light

A light I thought could never say goodbye

Seeing you empty would be the most bitter sight

I thought the spark in your eye could never sleep forever

Death doomed me, leaving behind none of your light

A shock that struck as sudden as ever

It did and still aches my heart

To nod and accept the somber truth

But deep down, I know we didn't part

For I know that heavenly destiny will soothe

The pain of the past

As both of us walk in the whitest clothes

In the lightest place

And I'll know that your sleep was just a doze

As I get to see your angelic face
