God took Her away from me,
He stole Her right out of my life.
It was His will, and He took Her,
My one and only Love, My Wife.

Grief stricken and crazed,
My life... a constant river of tears.
God took my Wife away from me,
Robbing me of all those wonderful years.

Embittered and broken,
The pain in my heart's like a nail.
God took Her with Him, to Heaven,
And left me here alone, in Hell.

As I kneel by Her headstone, I curse Him,
And over and over, I ask Him why?
Why did He have to take Her now?
Why did She have to die?

Ironically, His answer comes to me...
In the form of raindrops from the sky.
They stain the silk roses that I brought Her,
As I begin to cry.

The rain pours down on me relentlessly,
And the color of Red starts to bleed.
A little voice inside of me whispers,
Telling me exactly, just what I need.

With only a slight hesitation, I have decided, and it's done-
I give up my Ghost to God now, He's won.
As I put the gun up to my head,
I pull the trigger... It's over now-

And the granite is Stained In Red
