The Change

Dedicated to Arpita

(Piano INTRO)

She stares at the blinds
In images in her mind
She finds herself helpless
She can do nothing but sigh

She excuses herself and he leaves her to be on her own
Where she hides and she thinks about the last
Her past haunts as she walks across the bright silver chair
They stay quiet and to each other they stare

She stares at the album left in the dust
As she tries to get hold of her life in despair
But it seems so unfair

And nothing she says, can undo the change
And nothing she says, can redo (the change)

I bow down to You for an all new start
And life from that cold lifeless frame

Gone with the ashes
And left with all but just dreams
All to a better place
Leaving us with the pain
Absence of her still lingers
Her presence will be 
Felt until life’s ends shall meet

(Piano EXTRO)

Sounds like it is difficult to talk about the pain of losing someone. I know it is awful to have to let go.

Unless you get Alzheimer`s, the past always haunts the present.

I know similar feelings having lost some very close over the years- Feeling their presence in shaping your soul, n the hole it leaves without them.
Interesting Blog from an artist down under. I'll be back-
