My world was turned, undone, destroyed

Spinning into space

I sat alone, with just my thoughts

And tears my company

How could it happen? Happen to me

This was someone else’s nightmare

This was all wrong, how could it be, didn’t anybody care?

An accident my mother said

I knew that wasn’t true

There was something else here and now, an inconvenient truth

And when I asked, confronted, begged

What I dreaded most was true

In my heart I knew I’d known the shot was planned and done

Ending his life all for a dept

He couldn’t bear to face

There was more I’m sure then gambling dept,

But I will never know

And even though he’s dead and gone

He loved me…this I know
