THE SADDEST TIMES
And in the saddest times, after he passed on,
Broken hearted hours never end;
Nothing to look forward to at all
Because she lost her wonderful friend.
In the mirror her face is drawn and pale
As she watches her hair turn gray.
Her eyes have faded from crystal clear and
Her smile has gone away.
The wrinkles on a face once smooth
Only confirm the regret and pain.
He knew her when her beauty shown, but
Now all beauty is in vain.
No one to love as they once loved and
No one left to care.
A remorseful future dreadfully looms
Grief is the cloak she wears.
The love of her life has gone away
So she clings to memories and dreams.
Only her thoughts keep her sane those days.
Only a broken heart remains.
