THE GREEN WORM
I had you as a friend~
You promised things would not change~
You promised under the sun~
You promised under the moon~
I remember the exact day!
She did not know me~
Yet she shunned me~
She put restrictions to not be with me~
Your promises wavered~
Your promises changed~
Yes I feel real hurt and pain!
This happens to me often~
Like I am the candle in the wind~
My flame burns purely~
But still I can not win.
I thought again this time it would be different~
I had high hopes your words were truth~
But the green worm got a hold of you~
Now I am weeping and blue.
Yes I voice my hurt~
I have a sensitive side too~
I have the right to tell you~
So I do not suffer with just pride like a fool.
Oh I will still be happy for you~
Because that is just me~
If and when the green worm leaves~
Our friendship I will honor still~
Outwardly and within trouble free.
Just give me now a moment~
To collect my thoughts and tears~
I still can not believe you of all people~
Has also forsaken your words~
To my pending fears.
Yes I still will love you~
With pure love as it should be~
Yes I will be happy for the green worm and Thee.
Just give me a day and a night~
While I mourn what we did have~
Give me the understanding~
That I had feelings deep for you my friend.
Why the silence you keep~
Is it guilt that you feel~
Why can you not at least console~
My loss of you as I cry for real.
Were you not expecting it~
My love to run so deep~
Can you not comfort me~
So I could be even a little relieved.
Well goodbye my friend~
I will not further complicate your life~
As the green worm is at hand~
I still cherish you and think~
You are an outstanding man.
Goodbye my friend that needs to now be afar~
Another wick that has gone affray~
So long, So long~
My hopes are in Heaven we will~
Dance again some day.
