Empty and hollow it swallows you whole.
As time passes by it will take its toll.
Loneliness and worry eating away at you.
With no information you don’t know what to do.
Biding all of your time just hoping for the best.
This anguish feels like you're being put to the test.
You are almost not sure if you want any news to come.
If things turn out bad you will end up the lonely one.
If they move on to another world far away from here.
Your heart will feel empty losing the ones you hold dear.
It’s inevitable, it will happen, it’s only a matter of time.
But not knowing when it will is what is really the crime.
Life is so short to not appreciate each other.
Tell them all you care from your family to your lover.
Be there and let them know how much they mean to you.
Forget everything you know and to your heart always be true.
Take each day as it comes and always try not to worry.
Or the unknown will completely drive you crazy in a hurry.
I’ve learned this lesson in many more ways than one.
We will all be together again even after this life is done.
