Distant tears remind me of a life that we once shared

Memories of golden days of moments when I cared

Endless days of tears you cried, flooded like the rain

Sleepless nights spent entwined as I sheltered you from pain

Time was cruel and heartless forcing us apart

Immediate pain was soon replaced, seasons heal a broken heart

I granted you your privacy, kept the memories locked inside

Wishing you the best in life just looking back with pride

Years on I hear through the grapevine you simply could not let it rest

Slaughtering my name behind my back with venom and detest

In vain I offered peace to you, yet you would not let it lie

Stuck the knife into my heart wishing I would die

Your endless slander and vicious lies now have led to this

Revenge will be swift and precise, the purest form of bliss

Your nails of wrath were sharp as they cut into my skin

Yet nothing cuts as deep as revenge, feel the pain within

So as the seasons turn again, keep your sights on the full lit moon

For the justice that I seek so bad, is coming to you soon
