Dim the lights, they hurt my eyes.
Mummy, tell me what is wrong.
Why is it that daddy cries?
Oh, he used to be so strong.
Hush the sounds, don't speak so loud.
The whispers and silent tears
Sound to me like thunderclouds.
Sad cries, echoes in my ears.
It is my heart that hurts most,
It was so strong in the past.
So pale now, nearly a ghost,
I breathe in and draw my last.
No more pain, just silence sweet,
In heaven, again we'll meet.
